From The Hill:

Bourdeaux, a professor at Georgia State University, is projected to advance to the November election after beating Democratic rival David Kim, the son of South Korean immigrants and founder of a tutoring company, according to the Associated Press.

With 97 percent of precincts reporting, Bourdeaux edged out Kim with 51.9 percent of the vote, compared to her rival’s 48.1 percent.

Bourdeaux, who previously ran the Georgia Senate’s budget office, will face Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Ga.), who hasn’t faced a serious challenge since he took office in 2011.

Carolyn served as Chair of ABFM in 2016. She is Associate Professor of Public Management and Policy at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University and Director of the Center for State and Local Finance.
