Jason Carter

Many Democrats say the way to recover lost ground in the conservative South is to reclaim the party’s lost identity as a champion of the middle class. Georgia Democrats thought legacy candidates were the answer, but Senate hopeful Michelle Nunn, former Sen. Sam Nunn’s daughter, and gubernatorial challenger Jason Carter, former President Jimmy Carter’s grandson, each lost by about 8 percentage points even after well-funded campaigns and ambitious voter-registration drives.
