Laurens ran in a special election for Georgia House of Representatives District 21. The seat was vacant following Sean Jerguson's (R) resignation. Jerguson announced he would run for the District 21 state senate seat left vacant when Chip Rogers (R) resigned in December 2012. Once his candidacy was certified, Jerguson had to resign his seat in the House in order to run for the senate. Laurens faced Scot Turner (R), Kenneth Ashley Mimbs (R) and Natalie Bergeron (D) in the special election on January 8, 2013.[2][3][1] As no candidate took more than 51 percent of the vote, a runoff between the top two vote-getters, Laurens and Turner, took place on February 5, which Turner won.[4][5][6][7]
