Cole withdraws from SOS consideration

From Tom Crawford at The Georgia Report:

Rep. Jim Cole changes his mind on SOS appointment —

He was Gov. Sonny Perdue’s choice to replace Karen Handel as secretary of state, but will stay in his current job as assistant athletic director at Mercer University, informed sources say; Perdue will have to look elsewhere for a replacement.


  1. Georgia Judge says:

    As stated earlier most times the prudent thing to do is sit back and let things develope and play out before making hasty decisions or assumptions……

  2. Tricia says:

    wow – although I guess he could have still taken the appointment, and just not run as an incumbant… Guess he wanted to keep his “safe” seat…

  3. Georgia Judge says:

    I would beg to differ but it really doesnt matter.I look forward to Brian Kemp being Georgia’s next SOS,he will do a great job..

  4. fishtail says:

    Perdue should use PeachPundit in the future to vet his appointments. He could avoid future embarrassment. I wonder if Cole spoke with Mark Burkhalter about the increased scrutiny he was bringing on himself ?

  5. Rick Day says:

    well….there are still a few good ‘uns in the ranks. Bully for him.

    If I was an elected official I would want to be tainted with Sonny Slime™ either!
