Today, the Democratic Party of Georgia released an updated report recounting Democrats’ wins in Georgia in the 2021 municipal elections, building on historic victories during the 2020 election cycle. The report highlights the core elements of the party’s successful electoral program and outlines the continued path forward to victory for Georgia Democrats in 2022 as we work to defend Senator Rev. Raphael Warnock’s seat, flip statewide offices, and win even more seats in the state legislature.
The report cites four key building blocks of DPG’s winning infrastructure and strategy:

“Between the 2020 and 2021 elections, Georgia Democrats have a lot to celebrate and be thankful for this holiday season,” said Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “After voting to send a Democrat to the White House for the first time in 28 years in 2020 and flipping both U.S. Senate seats blue earlier this year, we saw that Georgia Democrats’ momentum is still growing as voters from metro Atlanta to rural Georgia came out in full force in the 2021 municipal elections. Georgia voters are as energized as ever heading into the new year, and Democrats are well-positioned to continue mobilizing voters and flipping seats across the state in 2022 and beyond.”
“This report makes clear that Georgia Democrats’ wins in 2020 and 2021 were not flukes – Democrats and organizers across our state have been building towards this moment for years,” said Scott Hogan, Executive Director of the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Our successful past two election cycles show that Democrats can continue to win in Georgia and nationwide with strong candidates, strategic organizing, a commitment to voter protection, and early investments. As Republicans step up their anti-voting agenda nationwide, Democrats must fight hard, build fast, and present a strong, strategic front ready to compete throughout the country in 2022.”
