Rep. Andrew Clyde

Representative for Georgia’s 9th District


Clyde is the representative for Georgia’s 9th congressional district (view map) and is a Republican. He has served since Jan 3, 2021. Clyde is next up for reelection in 2022 and serves until Jan 3, 2023.

On January 6, 2021 in the hours after the attack on the Capitol, Clyde voted for the exclusion of Arizona and/or Pennsylvania — states narrowly won by Democrats — from the count of Electoral College votes that determined the next President of the United States. Legislators voting to disenfranchise these states were fooled by, or actively participated in, the same lies, conspiracy theories, and preposterous legal arguments about the election that motivated the insurrection at the Capitol.
