In 2016, four of Georgia’s 10 Republican members of Congress ran unopposed in the November general election, and the rest faced only token opposition.
How bad was it? We were lucky if our Democratic candidate had a Facebook page. In my district, the Infamous Sixth, there was debate over whether or not Tom Price’s opponent, Rodney Stooksbury, even existed.
Not only that, but a statewide Public Service Commission seat went unchalleged by Dems. That’s changing, though.
The other great, good news for 2018: Democrats in all 14 of Georgia’s Congressional Districts have announced that they’re running. Many candidates: 25 so far.
Since it’s important to know stuff and network, I’m building a list of Twitter handles for Georgia’s Democratic Congressional candidates. If you have a Twitter account, please follow them and amplify their voices. Do this even if you don’t Tweet much.
So far, this is what I’ve got, by district:
1st District: @LisaRingGA

2nd District: @SanfordBishop (Incumbent)
3rd District: @OliverForGA3rd
