2022 Georgia state elections

Several elections took place in the U.S. state of Georgia in 2022. The general election was held on November 8, 2022. A runoff election for one of Georgia's seats in the United States Senate was held on December 6, 2022. The runoff was scheduled because none of the candidates for Senate received 50% of the statewide vote in the general election. In addition to the Senate seat, all of Georgia's seats in the United States House of Representatives were up for election. Also up for election were all of Georgia's executive officers and legislative seats, as well as one seat on the Georgia Public Service Commission. The Republican Party decisively won every single statewide office in Georgia except for the Federal Senate race which narrowly went Democratic in 2022.

This was the first election following the 2020 United States redistricting cycle.

Federal offices

edit

United States House of Representatives

edit

Following the 2020 election, Democrats held their largest share of Georgia congressional seats since 2008 (and largest in the post-2010 redistricting cycle), with the gain of the 7th district by Carolyn Bourdeaux. In addition, the number of women representing Georgia grew from one to four with the re-election of Democrat Lucy McBath and the elections of Democrats Bordeaux, Nikema Williams and Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene, resulting in the first Georgia delegation with more than one woman in membership.

United States Senate

edit

Incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock won the 2020–2021 special election against incumbent Republican Kelly Loeffler to fill the remainder of former Sen. Johnny Isakson's term. (Isakson had resigned at the end of 2019, and Loeffler was appointed by Governor Brian Kemp following Isakson's resignation.) No candidate in the open election on November 3 received the 50% required by Georgia law to avoid a runoff, a type of election colloquially known as a "jungle primary"[1]—Warnock received just 32.9% of the vote—and so a runoff election between Warnock and Loeffler was held on January 5, 2021, which Warnock won with 51% of the vote.

Former Republican senator David Perdue, who lost his race to Democratic challenger Jon Ossoff in 2021, filed paperwork to run for this seat.[2] A week after filing the paperwork, however, Perdue announced that he would not pursue another race for the Senate.[3] Loeffler considered running again, while former U.S. Representative Doug Collins declined to run after heavy speculation that he would enter the race.[4][5] Herschel Walker, a professional football player, announced in August 2021 that he would join the Republican primary.[6]

Governor

edit

Governor Brian Kemp was elected in 2018 with 50.2% of the vote. He ran for re-election,[7] facing primary challenges from former U.S. Senator David Perdue[8] and several other candidates.

Stacey Abrams, former minority leader of the Georgia House of Representatives and Democratic nominee for governor in 2018, ran unchallenged for the Democratic nomination.[9]

Kemp easily won reelection, receiving 53.4% to Abrams’ 45.9% (7.5%).

Lieutenant governor

edit

Secretary of state

edit

Incumbent secretary of state Brad Raffensperger ran for re-election,[10] facing primary challenges from Republican Congressman Jody Hice[11] and former Alpharetta mayor David Belle Isle.[12]

State Representative Bee Nguyen,[13] former Cobb County Democratic Party Chairman, Dr. Michael Owens,[14] former Darton State College professor Manswell Peterson (withdrawn),[15] former Fulton County Commission Chair John Eaves,[16] and former Georgia State Senator and Mayor of Milledgeville Floyd L. Griffin Jr.[17] all declared their candidacies for the Democratic nomination.

Attorney general

edit

Republican incumbent attorney general Chris Carr ran for re-election.[18]

State Senator Jen Jordan ran for the Democratic nomination.[19] Charlie Bailey, former Fulton County senior assistant district attorney and 2018 Democratic nominee for attorney general, withdrew as a candidate in this race to run for lieutenant governor.[20][21]
