Democratic Congressman David Scott has represented Georgia’s 13th District since 2003. But this year, he is facing a number of challengers in the May 24 Primary. And his toughest challenge is coming from a familiar face in Democratic political circles – former state Sen. Vincent Fort. While both are in the same political party, there is a strong contrast between the two.

Scott is a member of the Blue Dog Coalition of conservative Democrats, while Fort is progressive Democrat – even having earned the endorsement of US Sen. Bernie Sanders and in 2017 when Fort ran for Mayor of Atlanta. In this race, Fort has received endorsements from Blue America, Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund, and Progressive Democrats of America, as well as Sanders.
