11th District: Rush to Challenge Loudermilk

11th District: Rush to Challenge Loudermilk

Much is made of the power of incumbents in American elections, but that advantage for first-term Congressman Barry Loudermilk doesn’t appear to have deterred many challengers in Georgia’ 11th District.

Loudermilk, who won a seat left vacant two years ago by longtime incumbent Phil Gingrey’s unsuccessful run for the U.S. Senate, faces four challengers in the Republican primary Tuesday, May 24: Billy Davis, Daniel Cowan, Hayden Collins and William Llop.

Collins, a radio personality in Bartow County who has long been seen as a potential political candidate, has relied on social media in a bid to unseat Loudermilk in the 11th, which includes all of Bartow and Cherokee counties, a large piece of Cobb County, and the northwestern corner of Fulton County.

Whoever survives the Republican primary will face Democrat Don Wilson in November’s general election.
