Pretty much status quo

It's qualifying season, and there's only one real surprise which is that Tommy Malcolm, currently a member of the Oconee County Board of Education, will challenge State Sen. Bill Cowsert in the GOP primary.

Cowsert has been, by most measures, a rather good state senator. Despite some differences, I really like the guy and think he's been very responsive to the communities he represents. Logic would dictate that he should win pretty easily, but Malcolm is young, conservative and has connections to both Walton County and Oconee County. With a smart campaign, he could make this an interesting race, though I'd still prefer Cowsert to be in that seat.
