Earlier this week, Ethan Underwood, a candidate running in the Republican primary for Georgia’s 9th Congressional District, completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. He joins Michael Boggus and Maria Strickland, both of whom previously completed surveys.
Ballotpedia asks all federal, state, and local candidates to complete a survey so voters can discover what motivates them on political and personal levels.
One question asks candidates to list three key messages of their campaigns. Here is one response from each candidate.
Underwood: “I understand the law, knows [sic] how to navigate the political process, and will not back down until we create solutions.” Read Underwood’s full survey responses here.
Boggus: “Stopping government overreach and spending.” Read Boggus’ full survey responses here.
Strickland: “Stop sending career politicians to Washington and expecting a different outcome.” Read Strickland’s full survey responses here.
In 2018, 1,957 candidates completed a Candidate Connection survey. This numbers represents 6.9% of all 28,315 candidates Ballotpedia covered during that cycle. Out of the 1,957 respondents, 477 (24.4%) won their elections.
