He had considered making this his last term, but Eric Johnson will seek an 8th term in the state Senate.
Eric Johnson told reporters last week that he’d formally announce his state Senate re-election plans in a few days.
On Tuesday, the Savannah Republican kept his word, breaking the news – such as it was – with an e-mailed press release. If, as most political experts think, Johnson wins an eighth term, it might be his last. He has said he probably won’t run again in 2010.
He serves as the Senate’s president pro tem, making him second only to Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle in that chamber.
Good for him. I’m glad to see him do this. With all his school reform initiatives, we need to keep him around.
