It’s already been an active political year in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Several candidates have begun issuing statements about challenging freshman Rep. Lucy McBath (D-Marietta), including defeated Rep. Karen Handel (R-Roswell). Speculation suggests that we will also see another tight campaign in the adjacent 7th District.
In November, Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Lawrenceville) and former state Senate committee staff director Carolyn Bourdeaux (D) battled to the closest vote spread in the country, a 419-ballot difference tipped in the Congressman’s favor. So far, 2018 candidate Davide Kim and Democratic activist and attorney Marqus Cole have come forward to publicly express interest in running, and now the Atlanta Journal Constitution issued a story saying that Ms. Bourdeaux is eyeing a political comeback. It is evident that in the coming election, Rep. Woodall will take his 2020 challenger more seriously than he did in the early part of the previous election cycle.
