Sue Everhart in now unopposed for the State GOP’s top spot:
Hobbs, who served two terms as Cobb GOP Chairman from 2003 to 2007, said he decided to withdraw from the race after spending time thinking about what is important to him.
“It’s time for me to focus on my personal and professional life,” he said.
The 38-year-old small business owner is engaged to be married this summer in Charleston, S.C. The amount of time needed to fulfill duties of serving as state chairman, as well as personal finances, also were major concerns, he said.
“After four years of being (Cobb) party chairman, I understand it’s a full-time volunteer job and at this junction in my life – these are my earning years,” said Hobbs.
UPDATE: The Political Vine is not buying Hobb’s withdrawal:
Knowing him as I do, I would not be a bit surprised to see him pop his head up at the convention, claim that a “groundswell of support” came to him and begged him to run for chairman, and he will claim the MDJ story was all a “fake story put out by my opponent.”
