Shoo-ins and blowouts fore­cast for Ge­or­gia races

GA Voice - - 2016electionnews -

Openly gay can­di­date Bob Gi­bel­ing, trea­surer of the LGBT Cau­cus of the Demo­cratic Party of Ge­or­gia, has an up­hill bat­tle to fight against in­cum­bent Repub­li­can Rep. Beth Be­skin. If he’s able to pull out a win, he would be­come the first openly gay male to be elected to the Ge­or­gia leg­is­la­ture—Rashad Tay­lor was outed while in of­fice and did not win re­elec­tion. Be­skin is beat­ing Gi­bel­ing ten­fold in the money race, and there was a no­tice­able non-en­dorse­ment from Ge­or­gia Equal­ity in this race. HD54 in­cludes Buck­head and West Mid­town.
