Lee Anderson was a representative in the Georgia House of Representatives. He represented parts of Columbia, Lincoln, and Wilkes counties. He is a State Senator serving the 24th District of Georgia.

Elections

In 2008, incumbent Republican State Representative Barry Fleming of Georgia's 117th House District decided to retire to run for Congress and challenge incumbent U.S. Congressman Paul Broun of Georgia's 10th congressional district. Anderson decided to run here and won the Republican primary with 69% of the vote. He won the general election unopposed. In 2010, he won re-election to a second term unopposed.[1]

2012 congressional election

Anderson ran in the newly redrawn Georgia's 12th congressional district, currently held by U.S. Congressman John Barrow (D-Savannah).[3] Lee was endorsed by Georgia Right to Life and signed the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge.

On paper, Anderson had a lot in his favor. The 12th had been significantly redrawn in redistricting, and now had a significant Republican tilt. Had the district existed in 2008, John McCain would have won it with 58 percent of the vote. By comparison, Barack Obama won the old 12th with 54 percent of the vote. However, on Election Day, Anderson lost, taking only 46.30% even as Mitt Romney won the district handily.[4] According to a post-mortem editorial in the Augusta Chronicle, Anderson was almost invisible during the campaign. He never debated Barrow, and made only cursory appearances before the media.[5]
