InsiderAdvantage is reporting that state Rep. Delvis Dutton (R-Glennville) is considering entering the 12th congressional district race.
The seat is currently held by Democratic congressman John Barrow, who has held the seat since 2006.
“We’re checking into it. We’re getting a lot of calls on it,” Dutton said.
Dutton won a special election in 2011 to the state House.
After winning re-election in 2012, he unsuccessfully challenged the chairwoman of the House Republican Caucus, state Rep. Donna Sheldon (R-Dacula).
