Georgia's 14th congressional district was created following the 2010 Census, when Georgia gained a 14th seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The district was represented by Republican Tom Graves from 2013 to 2020. In December 2019, Graves announced that he will not run for re-election in 2020.[4] Graves resigned on October 4, 2020.[5]

The congressional district includes the following counties in northwest Georgia:[6]

The three northernmost counties in the district are part of the Chattanooga, Tennessee metropolitan area and television market, with the central and southern portions reckoned as exurbs of Atlanta.

The district has a heavy Republican lean. Donald Trump carried the district with over 75 percent of the vote in 2016, his eighth-best showing in the nation. With a Cook Partisan Voting Index of R+27, on paper it is the 10th most Republican district in the nation. Among Georgia's congressional districts, only the neighboring 9th district is more Republican. Since its creation, no Democrat has managed as much as 30 percent of the vote.

Republicans are no less dominant at the state and local level. While conservative Democrats still held most local offices well into the 1990s, today there are almost no elected Democrats above the county level. Republicans typically win with margins of well over 70 percent of the vote.
