The Savannah Morning News is reporting that David Schwarz is ending his campaign to replace Jack Kingston in congress:
David Schwarz is suspending his campaign to replace longtime U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Savannah, in the House of Representatives.
“This was a very hard decision for me, because I truly feel that given my background and perspective, I could make a real difference and be a strong voice fighting for the citizens of the 1st District of Georgia in Congress at this critical time in our national history,” Schwarz said Monday in a news release.
Schwarz, 38, served three years as an adviser to Kingston in Washington, D.C., and is a founder and managing partner of Pier Strategies. He announced his candidacy in May.
I will go ahead and say that Senator Buddy Carter is the likely front-runner in this race, if for no other reason to once again demonstrate that Jeff Chapman has more supporters in the comments section here than he is usually able to muster at the polls. Also announced for the race are Dr. Bob “It’s not a day until I send out a press release” Johnson and Darwin “I can’t wait to be on a ballot with Paul Broun” Carter.
