Only Democratic Candidate With Resounding Electoral Victories and Successful Governing Experience Officially Takes on Incumbent David Perdue.

ATLANTA, GA – Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Teresa Tomlinson, the former two-term mayor of Columbus, Georgia, qualified to run for U.S. Senate today at the Georgia State Capitol.

“I have been fighting for justice and taking on bullies my whole life, first as a lawyer taking on corrupt corporations and then as a mayor, bringing Columbus together so all had an opportunity to thrive. Now, I have qualified to run for U.S. Senate because I’m sick of the dysfunction and divisiveness I see in Washington, D.C. Today, we have a system riddled with corruption and injustice in pursuit of an extremist agenda that benefits the few at the expense of the many. We can do better.

“David Perdue has failed Georgians, and I intend to hold him accountable for his runaway deficit spending, his abandonment of the un- and under-insured, his tariff war on our farmers and his inept handling of federal disaster relief. It’s time Georgia had a senator willing to fight for justice rather than enabling Donald Trump’s divisive, erratic and irresponsible behavior–and that’s why I’m running.”

Tomlinson was twice elected Mayor of Columbus, each time with more than 60% in a majority African-American city. As mayor, she helped turn around Columbus, and it was named one of the 25 best-run cities in the country. As a progressive, Tomlinson is strongly pro-choice, supports universal health care, supports environmental protections and will fight tirelessly against voter suppression and racial discrimination.
