State Sen. Brandon Beach, who represents portions of north Fulton County in the Legislature, said in a Saturday interview he intended to challenge McBath in 2020 and was set to formally launch his campaign within weeks. “I’ve made the decision. We are in, and we are going to win,” said Beach, an Alpharetta businessman who is former chief executive of the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce. “I know there will be a primary, but my focus is on Lucy McBath.”

This will hinge almost entirely on the female voters of the 6th District.
Good luck with that, Sen. Beach.

I read his entire vote history and it's like, wow, this is what Republicans do once in power? Pass a bunch of idiotic bills just to prove a point that does nothing for anyone - require the ten commandments at the Capitol, make English to official language of Georgia. It's like all they do is try to fight some invisible culture war in their heads instead of doing anything to actually help the people who elected them.

It is a fact of life that members of the House of Representatives have to start campaigning for re-election literally the minute after they are seated.

McBath will be in a fight for her position, and she better do better than being AOC’s tablemate in some selfies.

Someone like Georgia state Senator Brandon Beach is declaring his candidacy to run for Congress in Georgia's 6th Congressional District in 2020 only about two-and-a-half months after the 2018 Congressional election because:

1) For fundraising purposes... So that he can begin raising money for what is certain to be one of the most competitive congressional races in the country during the 2020 election cycle... An election cycle when a deeply unpopular, but exceedingly well-funded President Donald Trump is slated to be up for re-election

2) To build a profile as a congressional candidate early-on and become one of the biggest names in the race on the Republican side by the time the GOP primary rolls around in early 2020.

Georgia's 6th Congressional District is going to be one of the absolute most competitive and hottest congressional races in the nation during a heated 2020 election cycle when the state Georgia is expected to potentially be considered a battleground state earlier in the year on the strength of continuing demographic changes that seem to favor increased Democratic Party competitiveness in diversifying Atlanta suburbs.

Democratic Georgia 6th Congressional District U.S. Representative Lucy McBath became a target for Republicans from the moment she beat Republican Karen Handel in the 2018 Congressional election and flipped a seat that Republicans had held for 40 years, often with exceedingly comfortable margins during general elections.

Congresswoman McBath is going to be exceedingly vulnerable going into the 2020 election cycle. Republicans both in Georgia and nationally will stop at nothing to retake a Georgia 6th Congressional District seat that has a proud Republican and conservative heritage and that is seen as an area that has deep roots in the Republican/Conservative revolution of the late 20th Century.

(Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich most notably rose to power while representing Georgia's 6th Congressional District during a time when Republicans rose from total irrelevance to dominance in Georgia and the Southeastern U.S. from the late 1970's through the 1990's and 2000's.)

McBath has a shot for re-election, but she needs to treat her job seriously and expand her horizons beyond gun control. She also doesn’t have the luxury of a safe district that Ocasio-Cortez has. She has maybe 6-8 months to get her act together.
