Two Richmond Hill women are among several Democratic candidates looking to unseat incumbent Republicans at the state and federal levels this year.

Qualifying for the Georgia Assembly and United States Congress ended Friday.

Lisa Ring will face Barbara Seidman of Waycross in the Democratic primary May 22 in the First Congressional District. Ring is chair of the Bryan County Democratic Party. The winner will take on two-term incumbent Buddy Carter in November.

Sandra Workman, also of Richmond Hill, will face incumbent Republican Ben Watson in November for Georgia’s First District in the State Senate.

Alicia Scott, a Democrat from Savannah, filed to challenge incumbent Ron Stephens in House District 164.

In House District 160, incumbent Jan Tankersly faces a primary challenge from fellow Republican Robert Busbee.

Jess Petrea, who represents House District 166, faces no opposition for re-election.
