Congressional races[edit]

In 2006, Honeycutt was the Republican nominee and lost by 38 percent in Georgia's 13th Congressional District congressional elections. Honeycutt raised $1,337,777, of which $1,326,777 came from individuals and $11,000 from political action committees. Most of the money she raised went to BMW Direct, a Washington direct-mail firm that works for Republican candidates.[4]

In 2008, Honeycutt was again defeated by incumbent David Scott in the 13th Congressional district, despite an edge in fundraising. Honeycutt raised over $4.7 million to her opponent's $1.1 million,[5] yet lost 69% to 31%.[6] She had run unopposed in the Republican primary.

In 2010, unlike 2006 and 2008, there were several candidates competing for the Republican nomination for the 13th Congressional District. Honeycutt came in second in the primary, and lost to frontrunner Mike Crane in the runoff election that followed. Crane in turn lost to incumbent David Scott.
