Chris is vigorously defending Georgia’s election reform law (SB202) against eight legal challenges, including a lawsuit from Biden’s Department of Justice. Georgia’s law strengthens security, expands access and improves transparency, and Chris is confident Georgia will prevail against the blatantly political DOJ lawsuit.

  • COVID-19 has hit prisons and jails across the country hard. Georgia has the third highest incarceration rate (968 per 100,000 people) in the U.S. and is not publicly releasing data on the number of cases and deaths due to COVID-19 among the incarcerated population. What role does the Attorney General play in ensuring that our criminal justice system is humane?
