Democrat running against Marjorie Taylor Abruptly Drops Out of GA Race

Kevin Van Ausdal, the Democrat running against controversial Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene has abruptly dropped out of the race and announced he is leaving the state.

Not providing many details, Van Ausdal cited “family and personal reasons.”

Van Ausdal tweeted the following statement saying he’s “heartbroken.” The Democrat also vowed to “put every resource, every bit of knowledge into the campaign that comes behind me to defeat Marjorie .”

The district is safely red and Van Ausal’s chances to be victorious were slim. It’s unlikely at this point if the Georgia Democratic party will be able to replace him. According to The Hill “Georgia state law holds that a vacancy for a party nomination due to a candidate’s withdrawal can’t be filled within 60 days of an election. The Nov. 3 election is 53 days away.”

Upon the news, Marjorie Taylor wrote

“Best wishes to @KevinVanAusdal, who stepped down from the #Ga14 race today. Now let’s all work together to re-elect @realDonaldTrump, hold the U.S. Senate, repeal Nancy Pelosi as Speaker, and help GA Republicans win! SAVE AMERICA. STOP SOCIALISM. DEFEAT THE DEMOCRATS! #gapol”

In a follow up tweet she added “2. As the Congresswoman from NW Georgia, I look forward to fighting for our Christian, American values and helping  @realDonaldTrump pass an #AmericaFirst agenda! No one will fight harder against the radical, Socialist Democrats than me.#gapol”
