Former nominee Carolyn Bourdeaux (D) formally filed to make a second bid for Congress. She narrowly lost to Rep. Rob Woodall (R) in 2018. The incumbent announced last week he will retire after this term.

Bourdeaux lined up endorsements from former UN Ambassador Andrew Young, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-04), former Sen. Max Cleland (D), and nine state legislators.

Bourdeaux: “I am the daughter of public school teachers, both of whom instilled in me the value of public service and giving back to your community. I want to show my son, and all of our children, that if you don’t succeed the first time, keep fighting. And that is what we are doing today." (release)

THE FIELD. Businessman Narender Reddy (R) said in a Facebook post that's he's considering a run for the GOP nomination after entreaties from friends. "I'll be talking to my friends in the community and in Republican Party and will make my decision," he wrote.
