DeWitt and three other candidates were defeated by Chad Nimmer (R) in the February 15, 2011 special election to the Georgia House of Representatives District 136. Both Georgia special elections held an open primary. All candidates will appeared on the February 15 ballot along with their party affiliation. Since Nimmer received more than 50% of the vote, the election will not proceed to a run-off on March 15.
