But Georgia has also always been a conservative state. The democrats elected by Georgians are all moderately conservative. No Bernie's or AOCs in the mix. Sensible folks though, and not folks to fall prey to scammers from New York City.
That's how I look at it also. We were lucky enough to have Jimmy Carter as Governor who knew the state had to change when it came to civil rights. He changed it. Georgia never had the problems that Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas had. we moved on easily.
We had Zell Miller, Sam Nunn, Max Cleland, as governor/senators and the Republicans were also fairly moderate with Paul Coverdale and Johnny Isakson. Until Perdue and Lofler came around.
But that changing with the huge influx of folks from the northeast. Now we did have Cynthia McKinney for awhile. But as a representative only.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
