| Georgia State Senate, District 21 - Democratic Primary (2010)
| Mike Burton
Burton lost in the November 2 general election to Barry Loudermilk (R).
On his campaign website, Burton states:
I’m running for office because I believe many of our elected officials have lost sight of who we are. They bring their personal values and ambitions to the table, and they ignore ours. They serve only the big money interests and other politicos who they believe can get them elected. They’re out of touch with the everyday world of ordinary Georgians, and our state has suffered for it."
