Democrats Pick Johnson-Greene to Face Hice in East Georgia

Democrats are giving 2018 challenger Tabitha Johnson-Greene another shot at incumbent Republican Rep. Jody Hice in eastern Georgia's 10th Congressional district. The move comes as incumbent Republicans Buddy Carter and Austin Scott each roll to victory in bids for another term in Congress.

Carter defeated Republican challengers Danny Merritt and Ken Yasger in coastal Georgia's 1st District. Scott rolled past Daniel Ellyson and Robert Vance Dean in middle and south Georgia's 8th District.. Georgia Democrats were choosing between seven contenders in a U.S. Senate race to challenge incumbent Republican David Perdue. Joe Biden easily won Georgia’s Democratic presidential primary, while Trump was the only choice on the Republican ballot.
