Georgia’s 14th Congressional District represents a cluster of conservative-leaning counties in northwest Georgia. And the seat is now open, thanks to U.S. Rep. Tom Graves’ surprise retirement announcement.
Nine Republicans are facing off in Tuesday’s primary for the seat. Whoever wins the party’s nomination will face Democrat Kevin Van Ausdal in November.
Below, we have provided you with a rundown of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s coverage of these candidates, including links to our own articles, videos of them in debate and their campaign websites.
