Jason Carter has weighed in on the race to replace House Minority Stacey Abrams in the Georgia Legislature.
The ex-gubernatorial candidate endorsed Sachin Varghese, an attorney and former student-body president at UGA who works at the Bondurant Mixson & Elmore law firm with Carter.
“I’ve known Sachin Varghese for over a decade, so I speak from experience when I say that he’s an exceptional lawyer, a dedicated family man, and a Georgian of the highest character and integrity,” Carter said in an endorsement. “In fact, Sachin is exactly the kind of leader we need in the state house, and that’s why I am proud to endorse him for Georgia House District 89.”
Bee Nguyen, a nonprofit founder and Democratic operative, is also in the race to represent the heavily-Democratic district. Abrams announced earlier this month she was, er, “exploring” a run for governor.
