2020 United States Senate special election in Georgia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

2020 United States Senate special election in Georgia

← 2016 November 3, 2020 2022 →
 
Party Republican Democratic

Incumbent U.S. Senator

Kelly Loeffler
Republican



The 2020 United States Senate special election in Georgia will be held on November 3, 2020, following the resignation of Johnny Isakson effective December 31, 2019. Governor Brian Kemp appointed Kelly Loeffler to serve as Isakson's replacement, effective January 6, 2020, until the special election.[1]

On November 3, 2020, per Georgia law, a special general election will take place on the same day as the regularly scheduled U.S. Senate election for the seat currently held by David Perdue. Party labels will be printed on the ballot and if no candidate receives a majority of the vote, the top two finishers will advance to a run-off election, to be held on January 5, 2021.[2]

Background

Senator Johnny Isakson announced on August 28, 2019, that he will be resigning his Senate seat effective December 31, 2019 due to his deteriorating health.[1] This triggered a special election to fill the remainder of the term. On September 17, 2019, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp launched a website inviting Georgia citizens to submit their resumes in order to be considered for appointment.[3] Kemp appointed Republican Kelly Loeffler to fill the seat until the 2020 special election; Loeffler took office on January 6, 2020.[4]
