“We are ready to hit the ground running in every corner of the state to elect Democrats up and down the ballot who will go to work for Georgians,” said U.S. Rep. Nikema Williams, who serves as chairwoman of the Democratic Party of Georgia.
Democrats are facing stiff national headwinds as they look to overcome President Joe Biden’s plummeting approval ratings, high inflation and economic uncertainty.
Gov. Brian Kemp and Republican Senate nominee Herschel Walker each won crowded races with sweeping majorities, giving the GOP a sense of unity despite ongoing divisions fueled by former President Donald Trump.
The new Democratic effort is headed by Ebonee Dawson, a veteran strategist who most recently served as the political director for End Citizens United/Let America Vote. She was also the political director for Cal Cunningham, who ran for U.S. Senate in North Carolina in 2020.
“There is so much at stake in this election,” Dawson said. “And no one can afford to sit on the sidelines.”
