Roll Call reports that Retired Air Force Maj. Gen. Rick Goddard may challenge Rep. Jim Marshall in 2008:
Goddard met privately with House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) as well as National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Tom Cole (Okla.) and addressed the GOP Conference at its Wednesday morning meeting.
Goddard retired in March 2000 after serving as commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Center at Georgia’s Robins Air Force Base. The center, which is in Marshall’s 8th district, is the largest industrial complex in the state.
“He is considering running,” said NRCC spokesman Ken Spain. “He would make an incredibly strong candidate.”
