Georgia Republican Senator Will Retire This Year

The November 2020 ballot in Georgia will include a special election for the remaining two years of Isakson's term in addition to [David] Perdue's race for another six-year term.

It's a doubly tantalizing target for Democrats, who increasingly believe that Georgia, which has become less rural [?] and less white [?] in recent decades, due in part to the growth of Atlanta, stands on the verge of becoming a swing state after roughly two [!!] decades of leaning solidly Republican.

evidentally one POTUS = 2 chambers control by the GOP
It's an uphill battle for Georgia Democrats, who haven't elected a governor or U.S. senator since 1998. Bill Clinton was the last Democratic presidential candidate to win here, in 1992.
