On Tuesday night, a Republican candidate in Georgia’s gubernatorial race, the same candidate who promoted a “Deportation Bus Tour” to the state’s “sanctuary cities,” lost during the GOP primary.

State Senator Michael Williams was the former co-chair of Trump’s campaign in Georgia. He went viral after he promoted the”Deportation Bus Tour.” He described the bus as a way to send undocumented immigrants “back to where they came from.”

In the ad he was heard saying, “We’re not just going to track them and watch them roam around our state. We’re going to put them on this bus and send ‘em home.”

The tour was scheduled to be from May 16 to May 21 at different Cracker Barrel restaurant parking lots. The restaurant was quick to reveal they had nothing to do with William or the tour.

According to Tuesday’s election results, Williams only received about 5 percent of the vote. There were seven candidates who were competing in the GOP primary. Out of the seven, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp came out to be the winners. The two will face off in July for the Republican nomination.

On the Democratic side, Stacey Abrams took the nomination. Abrams’ victory made her one win away from making history. If she wins in November, Abrams would be the first African-American woman to be elected as governor.
