Take Action Georgia

Holds: Senate (Warnock), GA-06 (McBath), GA-07 (Bourdeaux)

The Rev. Raphael Warnock is defending the seat he won by 2 points in the January 2021 special election that drew the attention of the entire country. In the midterm election, Cook Political Report has rated the Georgia Senate race as Lean D. Six Republicans are already lining up to seek their party’s bid in the primaries. The highest profile of these candidates is Herschel Walker, retired football player, bobsledder, sprinter, and mixed martial artist who has been endorsed by Trump. The primary will occur on May 24, 2022.

The other race that deserves attention is in GA 07, where U.S. Congresswoman Carolyn Bourdeaux is defending the seat she won in 2020. The only Democrat in the country to flip a Republican seat in 2020, Bourdeaux faces a tough battle. First, it appears Georgia Republicans plan to ax either her district or the district of Congresswoman Lucy McBath (GA 06), who barely won in 2018 when she flipped that seat; her margin grew to 9% in 2020. Combining the districts would leave the two Democrats to fight over just one blue seat in the northern Atlanta suburbs. McBath’s district is rated Lean D by the Cook Political Report, while Bourdeaux’ district is rated Lean R.
