NAJC // Tamar Hallerman & Greg Bluestein: Next door in the 7th Congressional District, three Democratic candidates combined to raise about $500,000. But this is but the opening salvo: No high-profile Republican has entered the race yet, and more Democrats could also join the contest.
On Monday, Carolyn for Congress filed its first quarterly fundraising report with the FEC, showing $353,254 raised in the first seven weeks of the campaign and $397,550 on hand at the end of the period. Bourdeaux’s haul tops the list of total contributions in the first quarter of any congressional challenger nationwide.*
The Hill | Max Greenwood: Democrat Carolyn Bourdeaux raised more than $350,000 in the seven weeks since she announced her second bid to represent Georgia’s 7th District, her campaign told The Hill on Thursday.
Atlanta, Georgia – Today, the Georgia State Senate passed HB 481, an extreme anti-abortion bill that would effectively ban the procedure statewide. Bourdeaux’s own State Senator, Renee Unterman (R-Buford), carried the bill through her Senate Science and Technology Committee and voted for the legislation today.
Immediate Release: Since she confirmed her plans to run again for Georgia’s 7th Congressional District last Thursday, Bourdeaux saw an outpouring of support from key elected officials and allies, including Amb. Andrew Young, Congressman Hank Johnson, Retired Sen. Max Cleland, and 9 members of the Georgia state legislature.
Gwinnett Daily Post | Curt Yeomans: A day after news broke that Carolyn Bourdeaux is planning to announce she will run again as a Democrat for what will be an open 7th Congressional District seat, her campaign said endorsements are already starting to come in.
