In 2020, Georgia delivered Democrats a majority in the Senate by electing Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock. This majority made the passage of COVID-19 relief and the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill possible in 2021. In 2022, Senator Warnock will be up for reelection and will share the ballot with one of the nation’s marquee gubernatorial races.

Target Races in Georgia

Our primary objectives in Georgia are to 1) hold Sen. Warnock’s seat, 2) win the U.S. House race in GA-02, 3) flip the governorship, and 4) build Democratic power in the state legislature by winning key races in the State House.

What's at stake

Voting rights. Following Democratic wins in the 2020 election, Republicans in the State Legislature passed S.B. 202, one of the most restrictive voting laws in the country. It severely restricts mail-in voting, provides for State take-over of local election boards, and limits ballot drop boxes. Governor Kemp signed the bill on March 25, 2021.

Racial inequality. A 2021 study found that Georgia has the highest maternal mortality rate in the nation, with 42.6 deaths per 100,000 live births for all women, and 66.6 deaths for Black women. 31% of Black Georgians live below the poverty line, while nationally the number is 12%.

Health care. According to Georgia Health News in 2021, Georgia has the third-highest rate of uninsured individuals in the nation. The state is severely lacking in primary care doctors, ranking 40th in the nation, and in mental health care providers, ranking 45th. Georgia partially expanded Medicaid in 2021, however, eligibility is incredibly narrow, leaving at least 350,000 Georgians uninsured.
