State Rep. Nikki Randall and her dad, Judge Billy Randall made history by becoming the first father-daughter duo to appear on the ballot together in Macon.

State Rep. Nikki Randall (D-Macon) defeated Gerald Harvey 58-42 percent to win re-election to the District 142 Georgia House seat she's held since 1999.

Meanwhile, Judge Billy Randall was re-elected to the Civil Court Judge seat he's held for decades. Randall defeated Emory Christian by a 58-42 percent margin to hold the seat.

The Randalls say it was interesting sharing the ballot for the first time, but it also presented a challenges as they had to split their resources. But they say they're grateful to the community for placing their trust in their family.

"I think Randall is synoymous with service, and I'm proud of that. I'm proud of the three generations of leadership that we've offered this community, and I'm just grateful and humbled that this community continues to show their faith in us by re-electing us," says Nikki Randall.

Randall says she wants to promote regionalism when she goes back to Atlanta, and promote legislation to improve central Georgia.

Both father and daughter are unopposed in November.
