Clearly there will be a Republican field lining up to run for Georgia 12 regardless if John Barrow decides to run for reelection (as he’s already stated he will) or if he is persuaded to change his mind. Former Senate President Pro Tem Tommie Williams is being pressured to run by some locals, while Rick Allen and Wright McLeod may consider another go at it. Does Barry Fleming try again for Congress? That Charlie Harper fellow is often seen around Dublin. If he starts showing up in Augusta it might make you wonder what he’s really up to.
And do Democrats have a plan to hold on to this district if Barrow changes his mind and decides to move up. If Barrow decides to run for Senate, this seat should be an almost certain pickup for Republicans.
