Two Georgia Republicans running for a chance to defeat Democratic U.S. Rep. John Barrow have agreed to participate in four primary debates. Debates will be held in Augusta, Statesboro, Dublin and Douglas.
State Schools Superintendent John Barge officially launched his bid to unseat Gov. Nathan Deal Tuesday. Teachers say it will put school issues at the heart of the 2014 gubernatorial election. But GOP strategists believe it’s a Hail Mary pass by Barge.
Official results from Georgia's primary elections show just 584 votes separating Republican rivals Rick W. Allen and Wright McLeod in the 12th Congressional District, meaning a recount might be required to determine which candidate advances to a GOP runoff in two weeks.
Republican candidates hoping to take advantage of a newly redrawn 12th Congressional District debated in Vidalia Monday night. Rick Allen, Lee Anderson, Wright McLeod and Maria Sheffield each said that he or she was the best conservative to take on the well-financed incumbent Democrat John Barrow. The four agreed on most issues. Two sparred.
