After iVoterGuide’s 17,000 Hours of Research into 8,000+ Candidates This Fall, Voters Face ‘Clear Chasm of Demarcation Between Political Agendas’ in a Key House Race
October 26, 2020
ATLANTA — While many Americans have voted by mail or at local polling sites already, millions of others are still seeking information about the candidates running in state races. It’s why they should review the keen insights presented by iVoterGuide for the tight race in Georgia’s 7th Congressional District. There are very meaningful differences between the two candidates fighting for a House seat this fall.
“As the rhetoric heats up in the last days before the election, iVoterGuide’s data provides voters a clear picture of the political agendas of the candidates in the race for Georgia’s CD-7, cutting through the campaign ads with in-depth research on what Rich McCormick, Carolyn Bourdeaux and thousands of other candidates have done to earn this authority over our lives,” says iVoterGuide president Debbie Wuthnow.
In Georgia’s District 7, conservative candidate Rich McCormick (R)—a decorated Marine veteran and helicopter pilot and an ER doctor serving on the front lines against COVID-19—is endorsed by President Donald Trump, Newt Gingrich, the National Right to Life Committee, the Medical Association of Georgia, SealPAC, and the Guardian Fund, among many others. Select contributors to McCormick’s campaign include Club for Growth, the National Rifle Association, Our Country Deserves Better/Tea Party Express, and WinRed. Notably, McCormick’s affiliations include membership in the Christian Medical and Dental Association. He is also a Gwinnett Church Youth Leader.
By contrast, liberal candidate Carolyn Bourdeaux (D)— educated at Yale University and in public policy at the University of Southern California and Syracuse University—is endorsed by former Vice President Joe Biden, Demand Universal Healthcare (DUH!), Emily’s List, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund, the Progressive Turnout Project, and the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, among others. Contributors to her 2020 campaign include the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. When she ran (unsuccessfully) for office two years ago, her contributors included MoveOn and the Sierra Club.
The 2020 Georgia iVoterGuide provides Georgians with key insights into the candidates such as these and many more, including website and social media links, and specific responses (or non-responses) to the iVoterGuide survey.
“As Georgians head to early vote in person, we at iVoterGuide encourage all voters to take a close look at the extensive candidate information on iVoterGuide.com, especially data on the candidates for Georgia’s Congressional District 7,” said Wuthnow.
Importantly, a “who’s who” list of endorsers reveals a dramatic contrast of worldviews and perspectives on the role of government, especially when it comes to valuing and protecting human life at all stages. Select donation data from high-profile individuals and entities are key indicators of potential influence or control over candidates on these issues—and how each candidate is likely to legislate for his or her fellow citizens if elected.
While neither McCormick nor Bourdeaux responded to specific survey questions posed by iVoterGuide, the fiercely fought race in Georgia’s District 7 is very much a proxy battle between Trump and Biden. (The CD-7 seat is currently held by Congressman Rob Woodall (R), who after five terms is not seeking reelection.)
“Voters are in the midst of the most important election of our lifetime,” says Wuthnow. “iVoterGuide shows voters how candidates can be expected to use their power.”
iVoterGuide has invested 17,000 hours of research into comprehensive data, candidate positions, donations, background, and more in order to help Americans make the most informed decisions at the polls this fall. In addition, iVoterGuide has now released voter guides for all 50 states. iVoterGuide delivers facts to voters about all candidates seeking election—and the turnout for Georgia’s District 7 clash may significantly impact other down-ballot races, including those for the Georgia Senate and many other Georgia House seats.
Georgians are using iVoterGuide to determine, among other key points, which candidates have defended the United States Constitution and the principles of life, liberty and freedom to exercise personal responsibility.
Many Americans are increasingly recognizing how valuable the information is within iVoterGuide before casting their ballots. One user even remarked, “I just found out about iVoterGuide.com. I wish I had known sooner! It will help others to know where those running for positions in our government stand on different issues. Thank you!” Said another user, who has known about iVoterGuide for years, “One of my strongest resources in an election is the iVoterGuide. I have used it as a viable resource for as long as I can remember.”
