“It should be a Republican seat, but there’s a perfect storm that could happen that could make that challenging,” Sen. Isakson told Roll Call.
Sen. Isakson admits what Better Georgia has been saying for 19 months: Georgia is becoming less “red” and more “purple.”
“Georgia was one of the few Southern states that Romney didn’t carry by double digits,” Sen. Isakson notes.
In fact, Georgia was the most competitive non-battleground state in 2012.
Only North Carolina had a closer Presidential race — and that was after millions of dollars spent by both sides.
Add to this undercurrent of change a tough GOP primary with candidates fighting to take on the most radical, far-right positions. Then add a strong progressive candidate and a state filled with voters and activists ready to work hard for change.
With all of this, Sen. Isakson’s “perfect storm” will come to Georgia.
But change won’t happen without you.
Demographics have been shifting in Georgia for decade, even as conservatives won more seats and more control of the state.
You must work to make the perfect storm.
Talk to your friends and neighbors about how the failed conservative policies have made Georgia look more like Alabama and Mississippi.
Or, best of all, give just a few dollars to Better Georgia. Our work is effective but it’s not free.
We work full-time to change the conversation.
But whatever you do, don’t let the opportunity for political change in Georgia pass us by without doing something.
