Georgia

11 seats: 8R, 3D     R 53

Elimination of two black-majority districts in 1996 due to a Supreme Court ruling against race-conscious districting did not cause the defeat of their black incumbents, but neither did it help white Democratic challengers in surrounding districts. Even though all elections were won by more than 10% in 1998, at least three districts could be competitive in 2000. (NOTES: Due to a new, court-ordered redistricting plan, incumbents in districts 4 and 11 exchanged districts in the 1996 election. In addition, Nathan Deal changed parties in 1995.)
