It appears that former State Representative Clay Cox has chosen against opposing Don Balfour and his $750,000 and rising campaign warchest for his Gwinnett County Senate Seat. Instead, two other candidates are now expected to qualify tomorrow.
Debbie Dooley, Co-Founder of the Atlanta Tea Party and Steve Ramey of the Founding Fathers chapter of the Tea Party Patriots are both said to be filing papers at the State Capitol tomorrow.
Further, additional information is expected to be added to one of the pending ethics complaints against Balfour regarding his conflict of interest as being the sole auditor of expense reports from Senators including himself, contradicting Georgia code. Earlier complaints focused on Balfour’s multiple claims for mileage to and from his Snellville home and the Capitol on days when he was out of state, as well as days when he was staying in his Atlanta condominum which he keeps courtesy of his campaign account.
