Georgia Democrats finally face off in high-stakes U.S. Senate primary

WASHINGTON — Georgia Democrats are increasingly bullish that their candidate will oust Republican Sen. David Perdue in November.

But it may still be months before they know who that candidate is.

Georgia’s primary election is scheduled for next Tuesday — it was delayed from its initial May 19 date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The stakes are high for the Democrats vying to take on Perdue in the fall. An outright victory next week could spur voters to rally around a Democratic candidate sooner. But political observers expect the primary contest to head to an August runoff, shortening the time frame for Democrats to coalesce around their eventual nominee and focus exclusively on beating Perdue.

The Democratic contenders include investigative journalist Jon Ossoff, a former 6th District congressional candidate; former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson; and Sarah Riggs Amico, a businesswoman who ran for lieutenant governor in 2018. They’re each making the case that they’re the best person to beat Perdue.
