Atlanta, GA – The Democratic Party of Georgia will hold its quadrennial State Convention on Saturday, August, 9 in Dublin, Georgia at the DuBose Porter Regional Business and Industry Center. Senator Steve Henson and Representative Stacey Abrams will be co-chairing the event.


“We’re bringing our convention to Georgia’s heartland.” said Democratic Party of Georgia Chair DuBose Porter. “The selection of Laurens County to host this event should assure everyone that we will be working in all 159 counties. We have been and will be campaigning in the middle of Georgia and every corner of this state—North, South, East, and West.”


The purpose of the State Convention is to inspire and promote unity among Georgia Democrats in order to support and elect our nominees up and down the ballot to government offices at every level.


“As Chair, the most exciting part of the convention will be presenting our slate of statewide candidates. For months, our candidates have been making the case for Georgia Democrats,” concluded Chairman Porter. “The State Convention will give us an opportunity to speak with a unified voice—Republicans have ruined Georgia. They have wrecked education, job training, transportation, health care, and our environment. We have a better plan for our state’s future.”


A day full of events are scheduled, including speeches from Democratic statewide candidates, a BBQ lunch with live entertainment, votes on important resolutions, conducting the official business of the Democratic Party of Georgia, and general fellowship with unified and motivated Georgia Democrats.
