Over the weekend, author and US Army veteran Harold Earls (R) announced that he will challenge two-term Georgia Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Marietta) next year. Mr. Earls’ move may be a bit early, however.
While the current 6th District is competitive, an eventual final redistricting plan may make this seat safely Democratic. It would not be unusual to see the Republican map drawers craft the 6th as a Democratic CD while making the politically marginal 7th District much more Republican. The GA-7 seat is the only non-redistricting influenced seat in the country that flipped from Republican to Democrat in the 2020 election. Freshman Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux (D-Suwanee) defeated Dr. Rich McCormick (R), 51-49%, to convert the Atlanta metro partially suburban seat for the Democrats.
