by Robin Kemp

Four-term State Rep. Valencia Stovall, who is running for U.S. Senate, has made a commercial that aired at the end of CBS This Morning Aug. 13.

The short commercial features Stovall, dressed in bright orange and sporting dark glasses, pitching herself as an independent candidate in the Nov. 3 special election to fill former Sen. Johnny Isakson’s seat.

Also appearing briefly in the commercial are Riverdale activist Robb Leatherwood and Invest Clayton Chair Regina Deloach.

The crowded primary includes 19 challengers to Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s appointed seat. Although this is Loeffler’s first campaign, she has deep pockets and has said she would put up $20 million of her own money for the race.

On the Republican side, U.S. Rep. Doug Collins is duking it out with Loeffler after Gov. Brian Kemp passed him over for the appointment.

Among Democrats, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Matt Lieberman, son of former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman, are the top contenders.

Stovall, a longtime Democrat, is running in this race as an independent.


Here is the full list of qualified candidates running for Loeffler’s seat, according to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office. We’ve added links to each candidate’s name to his or her Ballotpedia profile page for your convenience:
