Carolyn Bourdeaux, a professor at Georgia State University, catapulted to statewide recognition in 2018 when she came less than 500 votes from defeating incumbent U.S. Rep. Rob Woodall for Georgia's 7th congressional district. Woodall announced that he won't seek re-election in 2020, and Bourdeaux has already announced she'll run again in a race that should gain national attention. - photo by Kelly Whitmire
