Jason Carter for Governor

Connie Stokes for Lieutenant Governor

Doreen Carter and Gerald Beckum for Secretary of State

Alisha Thmoas Morgan, Jurita Forehand Mays, Denise Freeman, Rita Robinzine, Tarnisha Dent, and Valerie Wilson for State Superintendent of Schools

The other race to watch is the U.S. Senate race with Branko Radulovacki, Michelle Nunn, Steen Miles, and Todd Anthony Robinson all competing. This is an open seat as a result of Saxby Chambliss decision to retire. This race and the governor's race are the high profile races. The attention paid to these races may increase voter turnout. Low turnout election years favor republicans. High voter turnout election years favor Democrats.
