The Senate Race Opens Up For Dems As Another GOP Lawmaker Calls It Quits

Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) announced on Wednesday that he would be resigning from his post at the end of this calendar year, citing his worsening Parkinson’s Disease as the reason.

Since Isakson is unable to finish out his term, GOP Gov. Brian Kemp will appoint a temporary replacement. A special election is set to be held in 2020 that will fill the vacant seat until the remainder of Isakson’s term in 2022.

Democrats can take advantage of this and try and win over a Republican-held seat in the Senate.
