Jim Galloway has a presser from former State Senator Doug Stoner has thrown his hat in the ring to be the next chairman of the Democratic Party of Georgia. From the presser:
I am excited about the opportunity to put my party, legislative and fundraising experience to use in helping to build the Democratic Party of Georgia,” Stoner said. “It’s very clear that Georgia is shifting away from a one party system, and I am prepared to work with my fellow Democrats to shape an agenda for the future.”
Stoner has a long history with Democratic politics, helping to rebuild the Cobb Democratic Party during the 1990s. He went on to become a member of the Georgia House of Representatives and the Georgia State Senate. He has a proven track record of fundraising and fund management, priorities he believes necessary to build an effective party infrastructure.
Stoner gathered 50 signatures, DPG rules apparently require 30 in order to get on the ballot. He didn’t disclose who signed his petition according to Galloway.
