Here’s a look at the candidates vying to replace Terry Coleman. The GOP feels good about this race.
Two political newcomers are battling to succeed one of the General Assembly’s longtime stalwarts.
Republican Jimmy Pruett and Democrat Dee Yearty are running for the state House District 144 seat held by former Speaker Terry Coleman, who retired this year.
The good news for Eastman is that regardless of the outcome, it will remain the home base of the district, which includes Dodge, Bleckley and Wilcox counties, plus parts of Pulaski and Ben Hill counties. Pruett, Yearty and Coleman all call Dodge County home.
