Atlanta sources reported that Aisha Yaqoob, a woman of color, Muslim, activist and the daughter of Pakistani immigrants, defeated Wayne Slear (71.16% to 28.84%) in the Georgia House of Representatives District 97 Democratic primary election on Tuesday. She will face Republican Bonnie Rich in November.



Accordingly Dr Indran Indrakrishnan, noted gastroenterologist and Emory professor, lost to Rich in the crowded Republican primary that had a total of six contenders. Meanwhile the House seat is being vacated by retiring Republican state Rep. Brooks Coleman.
