Following historic Democratic victories in elections across the country, 10th District congressional candidate Chalis Montgomery is poised to tap into the impassioned energy generated to defeat Congressman Jody Hice.
“With the Congressional election just under one year away, now is the time to keep our eyes on the prize—which is regaining a majority in Congress,” Montgomery said. “I’m ready to continue the fight, all the way to Washington.”
The hard-won victories by Jonathan Wallace (GA-119) and Deborah Gonzalez (GA 117), as well as Mary Parham-Copelan, who will be the first African-American female mayor of Milledgeville, are three examples among many across the nation that will embolden Democrats in the months ahead.
Since launching her campaign in July, Montgomery has been building relationships across the 25 counties in the district, meeting with constituents, listening to their concerns, and offering practical solutions that represent the values that the people of District 10 share. “I congratulate Jonathan, Deborah, Mary, and all of the Democrats who turned the tide in this election,” Montgomery said. “It’s time to get to work to replace ‘no sense’ with ‘common sense’ and give the people of the 10th district representation that works for every voice.”
