Fifth District congressional candidates Sen. Neil Riser and Vance McAllister will square off Saturday in the general election to name former Congressman Rodney Alexander’s successor. 

The pair emerged from a field of 14 candidates in the October primary.  A little more than 100,000 of the roughly 480,000 registered voters in the 5th District cast ballots in the primary election.  Riser captured 32 percent of the vote while McAllister recorded 18 percent of the vote.  Monroe Mayor Jamie Mayo, who has since endorsed McAllister, ran third with 15 percent of the vote.
