In the wake of the incredible Democratic victory in Alabama, 11 Alive reporters sought out Ethan Pham for comment about the potential of a flip of Georgia’s historically Republican 7th District. “
“People are fed up with the politics of division. People want leaders who respect women and value our common decency,” Pham told 11 Alive.
The 7th District voted for the GOP incumbent in 2016 by roughly 20% points. In Alabama, Democrat Doug Jones overcame a 28% deficit to claim victory. The win was fueled by minority turnout. The win in Alabama was on the heels of sweeping Democratic victories in Virginia where Democratic turnout again significantly outpaced the competition.
“To flip the 7th, Democrats must choose a candidate that can capture the energy among those upset or alienated by Trump, and motivate massive turnout among the many different voting blocks here in the 7th,” said Pham’s campaign manager. “Democratic voters should seriously consider who they vote for on May 22nd when selecting the nominee and whether that person can bring out the broad coalition that will be needed to unseat Rob Woodall.”
