ATLANTA (AP) - Gov. Sonny Perdue has set May 11 for a special election to fill a state Senate seat representing part of DeKalb County.

Among the candidates running to replace Adelman is Jason Carter, grandson of former President Jimmy Carter.
The younger Carter is making his first bid for elected office.
