Georgia voters will get a more competitive election

There have been many predictions in the national media that we are potentially headed for a “Blue wave” election year at the state and local level. The general theory is that Democratic voters are going to push back against President Donald Trump and try to elect a Congress that will keep closer tabs on him. This kind of pushback almost always happens after the first two years of a presidential term. Think of it as buyer’s remorse. There have already been some early signs of that wave. In special elections around the country – and here in Georgia -- Democrats have had some success in flipping legislative seats that had been held by the GOP for years.
