As this post hits the front page, I will be heading down to visit my friends in Floyd County as they, and a number of counties with populations over 80,000, gather to elect new precinct officers as well as delegates and alternates to their respective county conventions.
This is the “formal” beginning to the convention cycle of the Georgia Republican Party, and it’s also when you see a lot more folks “officially” announce their intent to run for various offices within the state’s Republican Party.
Last week, Michael McNeely was rumored to be considering a run for 1st Vice Chairman. He made that rumor into fact this week when he announced that he decided to go for it.
Doug Grammer is considering a run for 2nd Vice Chairman. There’s a possibility that he’ll show up in Cobb County to make an announcement on his decision.
Former Representative Gene Callaway has announced that he’ll be seeking to be chairman of the Gwinnett County Republican Party. Rachel Little is running for the chairmanship of the Gwinnett GOP as well.
If you’re a Georgia Republican, get involved in the process, meet your neighbors, and post any announced (or rumored) candidates in the comments below
