House District 40

In the 2016 election, the Democratic challenger Erick Allen came within 7 percent of defeating the incumbent, despite being outspent four to one. Hillary Clinton carried the district by 14 percent. Rich Golick, who’s served for 20 years, will not be running for re-election. 

In 2017, in response to Golick’s narrowing lead, Republicans planned to gerrymander the district, trying to add two predominately white districts and subtract two predominantly African-American districts (House Bill 515). These were among the districts that were dropped from the bill early on (even before the bill failed to pass in 2017).

The Georgia House representative for this district from 2004 to 2016 was Mike Cheokas (R), who switched from the Democratic to the Republican Party. Cheokas had a Democratic opponent in 2012 and 2014, but won narrow victories of 51 percent and 52 percent respectively. In 2016, Cheokas was opposed by Bill McGowan (D), and lost with 49 percent of the vote to McGowan's 51 percent. Shortly thereafter, Cheokas was appointed to the Georgia School Board by Gov. Nathan Deal.
