Allen ran again in 2014, this time making it to the general election. Allen defeated Barrow in the November election, in a result considered an upset even though the 12th had been made significantly more Republican in redistricting.

  • Controversy

    During a closed-door Republican meeting discussing an amendment that prohibited discrimination against LGBT workers, Allen read a Bible verse that says about homosexuals "they which commit such things are worthy of death." Allen told the assembled Republicans that they are "going to Hell" if they vote for the proposed anti-discrimination amendment.

    After dozens were killed at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, Allen offered prayers to the family of the victims but refused to apologize or retract his past comments stating that homosexuals were "worthy of death."

    Personal life

    Allen lives in Augusta, Georgia. A Methodist, he is married to Robin Allen and has four children.
