COBB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Republican Kay Kirkpatrick has captured a state Senate seat after winning the election in Georgia's 32nd District.

Kirkpatrick outpaced Democrat Christine Triebsch with nearly 57 percent of the vote for the seat vacated by Judson Hill, who left in February to run for the 6th District seat in Congress.

District 32 covers a large portion of eastern Cobb County and a small part of Sandy Springs in Fulton County.

Voters in Georgia's Senate District 32 have been bombarded with advertising and robo-calls in recent weeks. That's because much of the district sits within the borders of Congressional District 6 where big bucks are being spent in the race between Democrat Jon Ossoff and Republican Karen Handel.

District 32 has long been a Republican stronghold and will remain so as Kirkpatrick assumes office.
