Carolyn Bourdeaux Avoids Runoff; Wins GA-7 Democratic Primary

Carolyn Bourdeaux has won the Democratic primary for Georgia's 7th congressional district, avoiding an August runoff.  As ballots from the largely mail-in primary continue to be counted, she has crossed the 50% threshold, with that number expected to continue to grow as the remaining ballots are counted.

The race was called late Saturday afternoon by our results provider Decision Desk HQ.

Bourdeaux, a professor of public policy, was the 2018 nominee in this district, losing to incumbent Republican Rob Woodall in what would be the closest congressional race of the midterms. Woodall has since announced his retirement. She will face off against physician Rich McCormick, who won the Republican nomination.

Most forecasters see the race as a toss-up.
