The AJC is reporting that Donnie Bolena, Republican candidate for GA-6, has withdrawn from the race due to pressure from GOP officials to drop out. In a Facebook post, Bolena referred to himself as a “white nationalist” which did not sit well with a lot of people, including possibly the President Donald Trump camp. There was also an accusation of a “filthy” proposition made online by him, but Bolena denies it.
The following is a Facebook video by Bolena announcing his withdrawal.
The NRCC has weighed in after State Senator Zahra Karinshak entered into the GA-7 race as a Democrat. The NRCC states:
“Karishack, a first-term lawmaker who was endorsed by President Obama and Planned Parenthood last cycle, is running to be a rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi and the socialist Democrats.
But buckle up folks…with 6 socialist Dems in a race to the left, this primary’s bound to get messy!”
