A social justice advocate and gun safety reform champion
Congresswoman Lucy McBath (GA-06) beat Karen Handel, the winner of the 2017 Special Election in this suburban district outside of Atlanta. McBath’s political activism began when her son, Jordan Davis, was shot and killed during an argument over loud music. She traveled the country as a spokeswoman for Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, was part of Mothers of the Movement, and spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.
A strong supporter of campaign finance reform
McBath rejects corporate PAC money and supports a broad swath of campaign finance reform legislation that would end dark money in our elections and reduce the influence of corporate special interests in politics.
A critical re-election campaign
The district, which Mitt Romney won by over 20 points in 2012, become more Democratic in recent years, but remains competitive. The Cook Political Report considered this seat a Toss Up at the beginning of the 2020 cycle. McBath will be a priority for End Citizens United as the congresswoman prepares for a difficult re-election campaign.
Reformer at Risk?
No Corporate PAC?
