US: Georgia Democrats to decide today who will replace John Lewis on the ballot

The Democratic Party of Georgia unveiled five finalists to be considered Monday to replace the late U.S. Rep. John Lewis’ name on the November ballot, a group that includes the state party’s chairwoman, several other elected officials and the retired president of Morehouse College.

The group of five top contenders largely represents a younger, more progressive wing of the party and doesn’t include several veteran figures who were floated as possible “placeholders” to serve out a two-year term or who signaled they would immediately step down to trigger a wide-open special election next year.
