Georgia House Education Committee Chair Brooks Coleman of Duluth may be in for a three way primary contest in May. Political novice Dahlys Hamilton announced last month that she would challenge the 21 year House veteran in the Republican primary.
We have heard that Jef Fincher may throw his hat into the ring, possibly announcing his candidacy later this week. No political newcomer, Fincher ran in the seven person race to replace Congressman John Linder, coming in fourth, behind Rob Woodall, Jody Hice and Clay Cox. Fincher has also held leadership positions within the Gwinnett Republican party over the last few years. Fincher’s wife, Kathy, has deep roots in the Duluth area.
Nothing is official until an announcement from the candidate, of course. But it’s notable that Fincher registered the domain votejef.com back on November 28th, 2013. That’s the same website name he used for his 2010 congressional bid.
