Preparing for the race for the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, physician and veteran Dr. Richard McCormick is aiming for the Republican nomination.
McCormick, an emergency medicine doctor at Gwinnett Medical Center, is one of nine Republicans who have announced their intention to run for the seat in 2020, promising to bring his conservative beliefs to the campaign trail.
On the issues, McCormick said he supports FairTax, the Second Amendment and is pro-life.
McCormick served for more than 20 years in the Marine Corps as a pilot and emergency medicine doctor, and served in combat zones in Africa, the Arabian Gulf and Afghanistan.
He graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Morehouse, completed his residency in emergency medicine through Emory University during his training at Grady Hospital and received an MCA from the National University.
McCormick lives in Suwannee with his wife Debra, an oncologist. The couple have seven children and attend Gwinnett Church, where McCormick works as the leader of a small group of high school students.
The high-profile race received national attention after Representative Rob Woodall (Republican of Lawrenceville) defeated Democratic challenger Caroline Boudreau in 2018 by less than 500 votes in a historically conservative stronghold.
McCormick will face longtime State Senator Renee Unterman (R-Buford), former Home Depot executive Lynne Homrich, former Atlanta Falcons player Joe Profit, Air Force veteran Ben Bullock, businessman Mark Gonsalves, founder of Conservative Diversity Alliance, Jacqueline Tsing, former education executive Lera Lee and former university professor Lisa Noel Babbage.
On the Democratic side, Bordeaux is competing again in 2020, along with other Democratic candidates in State Representative Brenda Lopez Romero (Democrat of Norcross), activist Nabila Islam, attorney Marcus Cole, and former Fulton County Committee Chairman John Ives.
Parties will select their candidates in may’s primaries before the November elections.
