Miguel Camacho is a long term resident of Georgia with strong political passions for our great state and our country. He is a veteran of the Georgia National Guard and has been an active member of the Democratic party since high school. Miguel’s long history of service led him to play a prominent role as a Deputy Field Organizer in the 2008 Presidential Election. In 2008, Miguel was appointed as an At-Large Delegate-Alternate for the Obama campaign and was elected to the DPG’s State Committee. In 2010, as the Chairman of Candidate Recruitment for Chatham County Democrats, Miguel implemented the DPG’s 2010 election strategy of running a viable Democrat against every Republican incumbent. Chatham was one of only a few county parties to successfully carry out this strategy. Due to these efforts, CCDC was a recipient of the GADCC’s 2010 President’s Award. Miguel has a degree in management and currently manages a program construction management firm. You can find Miguel on facebook here.

With U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss’ announcement that he will not seek re-election in 2014, Georgia Democrats are looking to field an exceptional candidate.
Georgia Democratic Chair Mike Berlon says the state party had been working on the race for several months and “… we are interested in getting it right.”
“It is clear, ” Chairman Berlon says, ” that the politics and demographics within Georgia are changing. In November, President Obama received more than 45.5% of the statewide vote with little national help. With the significant changes that are taking place, we believe that we could win this seat even if it were against an incumbent. With this being an open seat, our odds have improved significantly.”
