Ossoff,  joined by more than 15 supporters and members of his campaign staff, said he’s ready for the opportunity to bring his message of unity to the district and excited to stand up for the core values that unify Georgians  –  rejecting fear, division, and extremism.

“I’m a former national security professional and now a small business owner – my company specializes in anti-corruption investigations,” said Ossoff. “I'll focus on advancing our prosperity and health, defending our civil liberties and civil rights, and keeping Georgians safe.”

Ossoff, who has the backing of civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis, Georgia Minority Leader Stacey Abrams and Gov. Roy Barnes, has now amassed more than 1,000 volunteers.

“The outpouring of support has been overwhelming, but this isn’t about me,” said Ossoff. “It’s about the people of Georgia’s Sixth District, and I intend to fight for them in Washington.”

Georgia’s Sixth District encompasses parts of Fulton, Cobb and DeKalb counties.
