Its boundaries may have shifted slightly in the new maps approved by the General Assembly, but the 13th District remains a Democratic stronghold.

That means the race was likely decided during the May primary, which turned into a referendum on U.S. Rep. David Scott. Seeking his 11th term in office, Scott defeated three Democratic challengers who said fresh blood and a fresh voice are needed in the south metro Atlanta district.

Scott will face Republican Caesar Gonzales in November.

The 13th District includes south Fulton County, most of Clayton County and parts of Cobb, Douglas, Fayette and Henry counties.
