The latest in Georgia

Nov. 22, 2021

On Nov. 22, the Georgia House of Representatives passed a Republican-proposed congressional map . Because the Georgia Senate passed the same legislation on Nov. 19, the map now heads to Republican Gov. Brian Kemp’s desk for his signature. The new lines would give the GOP a strong chance of capturing at least one Democratic-held seat in the state. Georgia’s current congressional delegation has eight Republicans and six Democrats, but the plan would shift Georgia’s 6th District from a competitive D+1 seat to a R+24 district, making it almost certain to fall into Republican hands..

The GOP proposal most clearly impacts the futures of Democratic Reps. Carolyn Bourdeaux and Lucy McBath. McBath now has little hope of winning reelection in the new 6th District, so she has decided to run next door in the new 7th District against Bourdeaux. Under the Republican plan, the 7th District would become a clearly Democratic-leaning seat, moving from R+4 to D+16, so the winner of a prospective Bourdeaux-McBath primary would likely hold onto the seat in the 2022 general election.

Outside the Atlanta area, the Republican map would leave the 2nd District in southwest Georgia as the state’s only competitive seat in a general election, as the proposal moves it slightly to the right, from D+6 to D+4. This could imperil longtime Democratic Rep. Sanford Bishop in the 2022 midterm election, but the plurality-Black district’s high degree of racially polarized voting — Black voters vote mostly Democratic, white voters mostly Republican — may help Bishop survive. Moreover, he’s won over a meaningful number of rural white voters over the years.

Bishop’s 2nd District would be one of five districts under the GOP plan where white voters would constitute a minority of the voting-age population, which is unchanged from the current map. This runs against the fact that much of Georgia's population growth since 2010 has been driven by people of color.
