Eric Johnson will be the first GOP candidate for Governor to hit the airwaves:
Starting Tuesday, Eric Johnson will become the first Republican candidate for Georgia governor to advertise on TV this year.
The former Savannah state senator will buy cable time in Atlanta, Savannah, Macon and Augusta, said Steve Green, his state campaign chairman.
Green said 30-second spots will air on ESPN, the Golf Channel, Fox, the Weather Channel, the History Channel and the Home and Garden Channel.
He said the opening barrage is timed to coincide with the Masters golf tournament, which begins Thursday in Augusta.
And so it begins.
