Albany-- Democrat Denise Majette pulled off a big upset two years ago when she ousted Atlanta area Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.
Now, the 49-year old Majette wants to become the first female and the first black U.S. Senator from Georgia. She's one of twelve people running for the seat being vacated by Zell Miller.
After just one term in Congress, Majette is ready to make the jump to the senate. Majette, a former state court judge in DeKalb County, says she wants to fight for good public schools, safe streets and affordable health care.
Majette believes in a strong national defense and she believes all Georgian's deserve tax relief. Majette rocked Georgia politics two years ago when she defeated longtime 4th District Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney.
Majette says in Congress, she's been recognized as a talented legislator who works well with colleagues on both sides of the aisle. As a member of the House Budget Committee she fought for the priorities of Georgia's seniors, veterans and children.
And she says she's worked to help small business owners gain access to capital. Denise Majette says she offers Georgians common-sense leadership and results.
