I’m told by a very reliable 6th district source that, as expected, Congressman Tom Price of Roswell is already making phone calls and his candidacy will be official shortly. It helps that the race has been under consideration for some time. That, and he has a couple million dollars in his campaign account that can be transferred to a Senate race.
Others considering a run now will have at least one of the data points they will need to decide if they wish to give up a current office (and/or be able to raise a sizable chunk) to face a well funded Congressman in a primary.
And, this of course sets new dominoes. I believe Karen Handel will likely jump in this race. Who else may join her in a quest to represent GA-6 in Washington?
