12th Congressional District Republican Primary the Focus of May 11 Atlanta Press Club Debate

ATLANTA — Five candidates looking to flip Georgia’s 12th Congressional District to the Republican side of the aisle are invited to face off during the Atlanta Press Club’s Loudermilk-Young Debate Series in advance of the May 20 primary.

Rick Allen, Delvis Dutton, John Stone, Diane Swanson Vann and Eugene Yu are jockeying for position in the crowded Republican field. The winner takes on Democratic incumbent John Barrow, who is not facing a primary challenger, during the Nov. 4 general election.

The debate will be broadcast statewide at 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 11, on Georgia Public Broadcasting affiliates, streamed on gpb.org and archived on atlantapressclub.org. The debate will be taped earlier that day – at 3:30 p.m. on May 11 – at GPB’s studio on 14th Street in Atlanta.
