The United States Senate primary for the state of Georgia is still more about ten months away. Incumbent Democrat Raphael Warnock will not be facing any real primary challenge but on the Republican side things could get interesting. Kelvin King is a long-time party activist and his wife Janelle is a former Deputy State Director for the Georgia Republican Party. But the current heavy hitter in the race is Commissioner of Agriculture Gary Black.

Having won statewide office before, Black comes in with something of a logistical advantage. He also comes into the race with high popularity, though this may be because, as Ag Commissioner, Black has been able to sidestep some of the thorniest issues over the past few years. Of course Black has been involved with statewide campaigns and was an active campaigner for President Donald Trump last year but those issues that cause a fuss coming out of the state legislature, Black is generally able to steer clear of. As a possible Senator, he still might be able to sidestep.
