Said to be “seriously considering” running for Linder’s old seat.
Sources close to Ralph Reed tell The Brody File that the former Executive Director of the Christian Coalition is “seriously” considering running for Congress in Georgia. According to one well-placed source, Reed has talked to key grassroots leaders and local elected officials in Gwinnett county and other parts of the district, but has not made a decision yet.
18 year veteran Congressman Rep. John Linder announced over the weekend that he’s retiring. This seat is in a big time Republican district in the Atlanta suburbs. Reed would be positioned well.
It’ll be interesting to see what Reed does. His grassroots Faith and Freedom Coalition is taking off but it’s kind of hard to pass up this opportunity considering openings like this don’t happen often.
