Rep. Lucy McBath will win the Democratic primary for Georgia's 7th Congressional District, CNN projects.
McBath became active in the gun control movement after her son was fatally shot in 2012 and since being elected, she’s become one of her caucus' foremost voices on the issue.
Georgia hosted the first Democratic member vs. member primary with McBath and Carolyn Bourdeaux running in the new 7th Congressional District. Both Democrats flipped suburban districts in their respective first elections (McBath in 2018 and Bourdeaux in 2020). While most of the new congressional district includes residents Bourdeaux represented, McBath has been able to outraise and outspend the first-term member.
