Georgia Rep. Mesha Mainor Switches to Republican Party

The press release below was issued by Josh McKoon, Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party, in response to Rep. Mesha Mainor’s decision to switch from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. Mainor was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2020 and currently represents House District 56.


Georgia Republican Party Chairman Josh McKoon welcomes, Representative Mesha Mainor of Atlanta, to the Republican Party following an announcement from the state house this morning.

Mainor, who represents a heavily democratic district, said her decision to join the GOP comes after months of thoughtful prayer and consideration in realization that the Democratic Party does not have her community’s best interest at heart. Mainor states in part, “As a lifelong democrat…I blindly followed a vision that is far from reality. It is time to put people and sound policy above politics and false narratives.”

Chairman Josh McKoon states, “This is a historic day for Georgia Republicans. We are delighted to welcome Rep. Mainor to the Georgia Republican Party and look forward to collaborating with her to advocate on behalf of hard working Georgians.  Our Party stands for empowering parents to be advocates for giving their children the best education possible, that every Georgia deserves to feel safe at home, at work, and in school; and to have the economic opportunity to build better lives.”

Mainor will continue her service in the General Assembly as the newest member of the House Republican Caucus effective, immediately.
