Women Running in Georgia

Significance of State

Georgia has several battleground districts that Democrats need in order to keep and expand their House majority in 2020. And, Georgia’s once-safely-Republican Senate seats have presented an opportunity to grab the Senate majority. Georgia may become more hospitable to Democrats, with thousands of young and minority groups registering to vote. From Joe Biden, “The next president of the United States is going to have to do two things: defeat Donald Trump and go into states like Georgia and win a Senate majority”
