Three young, progressive State House candidates endorsed by People for the American Way Action Fund won their party’s nomination in yesterday’s Democratic primary in Georgia.

The three candidates, Alisha Morgan of Austell, and Rashad Taylor and Ralph Long of Atlanta, are all incumbents, and all won their districts by more than 10-point margins.

People For the American Way Action Fund is dedicated to giving progressive leaders between the ages of 18 and 35 the strong start they need for long, effective careers in public service.

Marge Baker, Executive Vice President of People For the American Way Action Fund, issued the following statement:

“I send my heartfelt congratulations to Alisha, Rashad, and Ralph. Their strong victories in Tuesday’s primary reflect the excellent work they have been doing for their constituents and their untiring commitment to public service. I look forward to supporting them as they compete in November’s General Election and throughout their careers in service to the people of Georgia.”
