State Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond says he’s keeping the door open on a Democratic bid for lieutenant governor.
Thurmond was tapped on Wednesday by Democratic lawmakers to deliver the party’s response to Gov. Sonny Perdue’s final state of the state address.
Thurmond says while he is currently focused on his labor duties, he is “weighing his options” and “will make a decision soon” about whether to jump into the race.
While the General Assembly is back, the GOP seems to want to ignore all the issues with Senate leadership, and the Democrats are plotting.
I predict the Democrats will make gains in the state next year as the GOP makes gains in Congress.
