A Georgia State University professor is jumping into the rapidly expanding race for the state’s 7th District congressional seat, challenging Republican Rob Woodall with a health care-focused platform.
A Georgia State University professor and former state Senate budget director announced Thursday she intends to challenge four-term U.S. Congressman Rob Woodall for the Seventh Congressional District seat in the upcoming 2018 midterm election and has already received two endorsements.
Carolyn Bourdeaux is an associate professor of Public Management and Policy at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University in Atlanta. She has just embarked on an ambitious campaign to unseat four-term Republican incumbent Rob Woodall, in a district that has been held by the GOP since the wave election of 1994.
