Ellis pondering congressional run.

Macon Mayor Jack Ellis today said he is forming a committee to explore whether to seek the 8th congressional district seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall.

Ellis made his remarks this morning after signing a proclamation about breast cancer awareness. He said he will embark on a listening tour through the district on weekends and then more heavily once he leaves office in December. The district stretches from south Georgia’s Colquitt County through Middle Georgia to the southern edge of metro Atlanta.

I guess hearing about William Jefferson inspired him. Of course, if Marshall doesn’t vote to override SCHIP, maybe the Democrats will flirt with him. I doubt it, but we can hope. Hahahaha.

Thanks Mayor Ellis for today’s laugh.

    i don’t know much about macon politics–do these guys have a cordial relationship–do they have any relationship at all??? just curious

    Does this signal that Ellis thinks Marshall still may jump to the Senate race? Or he at least wants to be ready if Marshall does?

    If Ellis does challenge Marshall for the 8th district, Marshall might as well run for the senate. There’s no need for him to spend about $1 million dollars on a primary & then turn around & raise another $million dollars against Goddard or possibly Collins if he runs again ( which I think he would be the nominee over Goddard if he does ) just to fight to save a seat that can go either way. Because you know that if Ellis were to declare he’s running groups like Dalikkos, Moveon.org & other liberal groups would give hundreds of thousands & dollars to Ellis. I think Marshall would have a easier time running for the senate that for the 8th district.

    Have you heard anything lately on Robert Brown’s health? He’s such a private guy, but I’ve heard a rumor that he’s in hospice, but no one’s been able to confirm that. I know he’s not your favorite guy, but I thought maybe you’ve heard something in and around Macon.

    Loyalty, I don’t know. Everyone says the news is grim, but no one seems to know what the news actually is.

    My guess is, considering how few people have seen him, that it’s bad.
