US House Elections in GA-06 from 2014 to 2020

Today I'm re-upping this great series of maps shared by Twitter user @zhizhierbuzhier in May.  These maps of the US House elections in Georgia's 6th Congressional district illustrate the suburban shift that has happened over the past several years, as well as highlighting the Atlanta area as a particularly politically volatile place at the moment.

In 2014, this House district was largely off the radar.

In the immediate aftermath of President Donald Trump's election, with Representative Tom Price being elevated to Secretary of Health and Human Services, Democrats hoped to flip the district and poured millions into the race, but narrowly lost the runoff.

In the wave year of 2018, facing a better Democratic candidate in Lucy McBath, Republican Representative Karen Handel was unable to hold on.

 For now, Georgia's 6th is looking like a fairly comfortable Democratic hold.
