Cobb Democrat announces bid for State Senate seat

A Cobb County woman has announced her plans to run against a longtime state legislator in the Georgia Senate. 

Tania K. Robinson, a small business owner and community leader, said she will seek the Democratic nomination for the Senate District 38 seat.

The seat, currently held by longtime Democratic incumbent State Senator Horacena Tate, covers parts of Cobb and Fulton counties. Tate has held the seat for 20 years. 

Robinson has lived in Cobb County for more than 20 years. She said in a press release that now is the time to “connect the community to the capitol,” bring accountability to the Senate seat and government and find solutions to issues that residents in the district face.

She also was a delegate at the Democratic National Convention in 2012, her press release states.
