Whether the fundraising will match the polls won’t be seen for a month, but Julie Jordan — Democratic nominee for state House District 179 — improved on her numbers from the second quarter of this year by reporting $17,343 in contributions between the beginning of July and the end of September. That bests the second quarter total by more than $7,000.

Glynn County is an exceptionally tough place for Democrats to win, but state House District 179 candidate Julie Jordan could be one of the best chances for those of a blue persuasion in more than 20 years. She received the first standing ovation of the evening from the crowd.

“I decided to run for House so I could help everybody in this county have a better life — a life in which our children can grow up safe and well-educated,” Jordan said. “A life (in which) we are paid enough to provide for our families. A life in which health care is affordable and available to all who need it.”

“As I look over all of the people here today, I want to let immigrants know that they are not alone,” said Julie Jordan, a member of Women’s Voices of Glynn County and a candidate for House District 179. “Thousands of people around the country at over 750 rallies that started just now when we did are speaking together with the same voice — a voice that has been deafening throughout the country in the last weeks proclaiming that separating children from their parents is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.”

A Democratic love-fest: Georgia partisans unite at fundraiser

The party’s annual big-ticket fundraiser turned into a unity rally Thursday, as Democrats rallied behind candidates for top races and mocked Republicans who face a grueling nine-week runoff to hash out their nominees for governor and other key offices.

Democrat Stacey Abrams, the nominee for governor, sat a few feet from her one-time rival Stacey Evans. Other unsuccessful candidates worked the room, pledging to band behind the party’s nominees even as Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp ready for a July 24 showdown.

Evans, who quickly endorsed Abrams after her defeat Tuesday, also appeared alongside the nominee at a luncheon organized by the WIN List advocacy group earlier Thursday. At the fundraiser, party chair DuBose Porter praised her for her party loyalty.

Jordan will run against incumbent Don Hogan for the House District 179 seat. She said she’s running to give voters a choice.

If elected, she said she’d focus on issues that are important to this area, including economic development, support for living wages, accessible early education and environmental protections.

“We have had local candidates that run continually unopposed for many many years,” Jordan said. “I feel like our voters need a choice. We need to have our voices heard, no matter what the issues. All the people in this district matter.”

St. Simons Island Democrat Julie Jordan reported raising more than $8,000 however, a prodigious amount considering the voting behavior of the district and the limited amount of time. While Hogan, her opponent, has more than double that number on hand — more than $17,200 — Jordan’s fundraising shows she may be able to go toe-to-toe with the incumbent on dollars as the campaign picks up pace.
