Former Rep. Karen Handel (R-Roswell), who won the most expensive race in history in a 2017 special election but lost the regular vote to current Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Marietta) by less than a percentage point, says she is seriously considering running again in 2020. Before her election to Congress, Ms. Handel served as Georgia Secretary of State and ran a close race for Governor.
Last week, state Sen. Brandon Beach (R-Alpharetta) filed a federal financial campaign committee that will allow him to begin raising funds. The 6th District promises to be a top Republican conversion target in 2020, and it appears will also host an active GOP primary campaign.
