These are just a few of the high profile names running for Congress in a red hot part of metro Atlanta.


Georgia's 7th Congressional District includes large sections of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties.


Republican Rep. Rob Woodall (R-Lawrenceville) retained the seat last November by a only a few hundred votes, staving off a challenge from Bourdeaux.

The high profile race is receiving national attention after Woodall announced that he will not seek another term.
