As reported here, Brad Scott has announced for Ron Forester’s seat.
Also, I hear via my Gnome in the Dome that Tommy Sandoval is going to announce for the PSC to replace Spier.
Rumor also has it that Sen. Curt Thompson of Norcross is going to qualify for that seat on the Democratic side, so there will be an opening there too. Or Maybe Not
Consider this an open Qualifying thread.
