A special election will be held Tuesday, June 16 to fill the seat of longtime legislator Tyrone Brooks Sr., who recently resigned before pleading guilty to federal fraud charges.

Gov. Nathan Deal on Friday issued an executive order for Secretary of State Brian Kemp to call the special election on that date.

Brooks’ son, Tyrone Brooks Jr., has said he will run for the 55th District seat his father held for 35 years.
