Ralph Reed expected to pass on US House bid

Roll Call reports that Ralph Reed, who lost to Casey Cagle in 2006 in the GOP primary for Lt. Governor, will likely pass on a run for Congress:

Former Christian Coalition architect Ralph Reed, who is known to be considering a possible bid in Georgia’s open 7th district, announced Tuesday that he’d make his future plans known on Wednesday. But multiple Georgia GOP insiders said Tuesday afternoon that they believe the former lieutenant governor candidate will simply be announcing that he will pass on the Congressional contest.

According to one source, Reed, a well-known conservative voice who lives in the 7th district, has not reached out to key supporters in Georgia about running for Congress. Others pointed out that his trip to New York on Monday for a Fox New appearance isn’t the move of a would-be candidate getting his team together ahead of a Congressional campaign announcement.
