A total of 18 candidates are competing for the 6th Congressional District seat in an April 18 special election. The district — which includes parts of Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs — was formerly represented by Tom Price, who left to become the new U.S. secretary of Health and Human Services.

The Reporter asked all of the candidates for a biography and the answers to questions about their stances on the Affordable Care Act and politics in general. Fourteen of the candidates responded and their answers appear below.
