Candidates debate in race to succeed Seabaugh in SD28

The Newnan Times-Herald continues the best series in recent memory on a local political race with their coverage of Wednesday night’s debate between six GOPers, two Dems and an Independent candidate in the special election to succeed Mitch Seabaugh.

Tuesday’s election for the Senate seat will determine who represents all of Coweta and Heard counties and parts of Troup and Carroll. It also may affect the delicate balance of power in the GOP Senate Caucus.

The Times-Herald article notably includes portions of each candidate’s response to questions about whether Georgia remains competitive against other states in job creation, and what the candidate would do as a Senator to promote economic growth in the state.

At nearly 1400 words, it’s a lengthy piece that does a service to local voters.
