State Rep. Beth Moore recently announced she has picked up 19 endorsements — ranging from a congresswoman to legislators, city officials and a county commissioner — in her race for the state Senate District 7 seat that will begin representing part of Gwinnett County in 2023.
Moore, a Democrat from Peachtree Corners who has spent two terms in the Georgia House of Representatives, announced her plans to run for the Senate seat in November and is set to face at least Nabilah Islam in this year’s Democratic primary for the Senate District 7.
The Senate seat was drawn into Gwinnett as part of the legislative redistricting done by the Georgia General Assembly in November.
She announced a “Round One” list of officials who have endorsed her on social media this week, including: U.S. Rep. Carolyn Bourdeaux, D-Ga.; Gwinnett County Commissioner Ben Ku; state Reps. Sam Park, Jasmine Clark, Shelly Hutchinson, Gregg Kennard and Dar-shun Kendrick; state Sen. Sally Harrell; former Georgia House Minority Leader Bob Trammell; Norcross City Councilmen Alex Hixson, Matt Myers and Bruce Gaynor; Peachtree Corners Mayor Mike Mason and City Councilmen Weare Gratwick, Eric Christ and Joe Sawyer; and Berkeley Lake Mayor Lois Salter and Councilman Scott Lee.
“I’m honored to announce my 1st round of endorsements from fellow elected officials who support my candidacy for Georgia’s new Senate District 7 in Gwinnett,” Moore said in her announcement of the endorsements.
“Thank you to these distinguished public servants for their friendship and support.”
Moore teased that a “Round Two” of endorsements will be announced soon.
