Received a campaign email from Angela Hicks, which included the following:
We’re excited to announce State Senator Ross Tolleson from Perry, will serve as our Honorary Campaign Chairman. Ross is a tireless worker for Georgia ; we are honored to have him join us. Thank you Ross!
Hicks is in a crowded GOP primary field for the 8th Congressional District, which includes Paul Rish, Valerie Meyers, and Ken DeLoach. Senator Tolleson had been rumored to be seriously considering the race himself.
With his apparent decision to back Hicks, it remains to be seen if this galvanizes support behind the current field, or if other candidates use his decision as an opportunity to dive in.
