Former(?) Gwinnett County Republican Party Chairman Chuck Efstration has announced he will seek John Linder’s seat in Congress:
Georgia needs a strong, conservative voice representing the 7th Congressional District. We need new blood that’s conservative without apology. With this in mind, I offer my name as a candidate for Congress. Campaigns are similar to a job interview conducted by the electorate, and I am eager to provide my credentials.
I was honored that Congressman Linder chose an event I had organized as Gwinnett GOP Chairman to publicly announce his retirement. Only minutes after the news, I began to receive calls from friends and GOP members urging me to run for Congress. Now, I ask you for your support as I humbly offer myself as a candidate. I ask you to share your comments by sending an email to [email protected] Just like any tough effort, I will have to put together the right team to win and I need you in the lineup!
Chuck has done a great job with the Gwinnett GOP in bringing together various factions. He will be missed.
In addition former Snellville Councilman Anderson filed to challenge Travis Bowden for Don Balfour’s not vacant seat:
SNELLVILLE, GA–Former Snellville City Councilman, Joe Anderson (51), threw his hat in the ring today for State Senate District Nine. The seat is currently held by Don Balfour, who in March announced he would run for US Congress while traveling in Egypt, only to later announce that he would not run for Congress or re-election to the State Senate, only to later announce that he would indeed run for re-election.
Anderson said “My experience in local government and as a small business owner will enable me to better serve my Lord, my country, my state, and my community at the State Capital.”
