17. Spot on. Barrow has been vulnerable for some time.

He's the last white Democrat from the Deep South, and his seat is always in danger. Much to his credit, he has managed to hold the seat through a couple of tough Republican challenges, but it's hard to say how long the seat can be held. The Republicans in Atlanta did their best to draw the district in such a way that he would lose, but he won anyway.

That said, I think the tide is turning. I suspect his seat is safe this year. It's the Republicans in Georgia who will see their margins of victory narrow until the state is principally blue ... only a couple of cycles from now, I suspect.
