GA Senate: Jon Ossoff (D)
Jon Ossoff is a Georgia native, media executive, investigative journalist, and small business owner. Ossoff and his wife Alisha, an OB/GYN physician, both grew up in Atlanta. Since 2013, Ossoff has served as the CEO of Insight TWI, a now 30-year old media production company. Ossoff earned his bachelor’s degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service and a master’s from the London School of Economics.
Before embarking upon his career in journalism and media production, Ossoff worked as a national security aide for Georgia Rep. Hank Johnson.
In 2012, Ossoff left Congress to pursue his career in investigative journalism, taking over as the CEO of a then-21-year-old, multi-Emmy award winning investigative television production company called Insight TWI.
In 2017, he was the Democratic nominee in the Special Election for Georgia’s Sixth District. He entered the race at 29 years old, six weeks after Republican Congressman Tom Price had been re-elected by 24%. It became the biggest Congressional race in American history, which Ossoff lost by 3% after producing the highest-ever turnout for a stand-alone House Special Election of all time.
With the endorsements of his mentor the late Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Hank Johnson, Georgia State Legislative Black Caucus Chair Rep. Karen Bennett, and dozens of other leaders from around Georgia, Ossoff is challenging Senator David Perdue in 2020.
