Barrow won’t run for Senate in Georgia – The Hill’s Ballot Box

Barrow would likely have been Democrats’ best chance at picking up the seat.

He has one of the most conservative voting records of any House Democrat and has proven to be a tough campaigner over the years, winning reelection last year in a district GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney carried by 12 percentage points.

Democrats are still hopeful they could have a shot at the seat.

“The divisive Republican primary is certain to produce a nominee that is too extreme for mainstream Georgians,” Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman Matt Canter said in a statement.

“We are confident we will have a strong candidate that will excite Democrats and provide independents and moderate Republicans with a strong, reasonable alternative to the extremism from Republicans.”
