Support for carolyn
Stephanie Schriock, President of Emily's List
"Carolyn Bourdeaux is an experienced leader whose lifelong commitment to public service has prepared her to be a voice for Forsyth and Gwinnett County families in Congress. Carolyn has honed her public policy expertise over the years as a budget expert at the Georgia state legislature and as a professor at Georgia State University. Now, she’s ready to take that expertise to Washington and work to expand opportunities for working families. . . . Carolyn has what it takes to flip this seat from red to blue and help Democrats take back the House."
Amb. Andrew Young
"Carolyn is the most qualified candidate running. She has been a senior policy advisor for state and federal government. She has my support because she is a fighter and has the experience to be effective on your behalf."
Rep. John lewis
"The citizens of the 7th District deserve a Representative who understands the grave issues confronting our country and who is ready to do what is right and what is just. Carolyn has the experience necessary to recognize and help design responsible, compassionate policy that serves the best interests of the 7th district, of Georgians, and all Americans."
Rep. Hank Johnson

U.S. Senator Max Cleland (Ret.)
"I am honored to endorse the candidacy of Carolyn Bourdeaux for Georgia’s 7th Congressional district. Her work to improve healthcare for millions of Georgians and her efforts to help the average Georgian through the Great Recession has been impressive to me. I’m sure it will be impressive to the citizens of the 7th congressional district so much so that they will want to send her to Washington to represent them. She has my full support."
Stacey Abrams, democratic nominee for governor of georgia

Tiffany muller, president of end citizens united
"Carolyn Bourdeaux is running a campaign that’s focused on what really matters -- the families in her district. She understands that corporate special interests have far too much influence over our democracy, which is why she’s not taking a dime of corporate PAC money in her campaign, and will fight to unrig the system. ECU is proud to endorse Carolyn and looks forward to working with her.”
Shirley Franklin, 58th mayor of atlanta
“I’m proud to endorse Carolyn Bourdeaux for Congress. We need to elect more qualified women like her to office, and I know Carolyn’s experience and ability to get things done will serve everyone in the 7th district well.”
"Carolyn Bourdeaux is brilliantly qualified & running a strong campaign in GA-07, just east of GA-06. That’s Gwinnett & Forsyth counties – it’s one of the fastest growing & changing slices of the Deep South. This will be a competitive race, and Carolyn needs our support!"
