If you’re a more recent Cobb voter, that may not be a surprise, considering Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump in Cobb by 6,800 votes during the 2016 presidential race.

Cobb is classically red territory. Before Clinton, the last Democrat to win the county was Georgia’s Jimmy Carter in 1976. The county has made for fertile GOP grounds in terms of support and cash over the years.
And Cobb is worth fighting for, with 13.78 percent of the state’s 10.3 million residents, according to Census data from July 2016.
