10th CD field nowhere near set

Rep. Jack Kingston has apparently been in touch with former Athens-Clarke Mayor Doc Eldridge (former Democrat, current Republican) regarding the 10th District seat. The two apparently had a “lengthy conversation” in which Kingston told Eldridge that his name “would likely come up as a potential candidate for the seat.”

Do with that what you will. There’s also been another decision to run by a 10th CD resident who has been preparing for an attempt to replace Charlie Norwood — upon the latter’s retirement — for some time now, although no details of his candidacy have yet been made public, and he won’t be a “big name” to anybody outside the area (if that).
