Great coverage in The Arch Conservative:


Chris Carr was recently appointed to serve as Georgia’s top legal office, that of the Attorney General. Upon graduating from UGA’s Terry College of Business, he attended law school at UGA’s Lumpkin School of Law. His private sector resume consists of working for Georgia Pacific, practicing law with Alston & Bird LLP, and serving as Vice President of the Georgia Public Policy Foundation. Carr left the private sector to become the Chief of Staff for U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson where he was then given the call to serve as the Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Economic Development where $14.4 billion was invested in the state and 84,000 jobs were created and Georgia was recognized as the number one state in which to do business. Before the Attorney General considered the opportunities he earned to lead at a statewide level, he lead Theta Chi Fraternity and the University’s Interfraternity Council as President of each. Presently, Chris Carr is running to remain in the office of the Attorney General on the promise to continue fighting elderly abuse, combating opioid use through education, prevention, and prosecution, and beating back federal overreach and regulations.

Carr’s favorite football player is Hines Ward, who played while the Attorney General attended school. He says that he admired how dynamic he was in being able to play different positions.
