There were some rumors back in the fall that Public Service Commissioner Lauren “Bubba” McDonald wouldn’t be running for re-election. A lack of funds and no apparent fundraising activity fueled those rumors. But McDonald has raised some money and is back and rarin’ to go:

“I wish to announce my reelection campaign to the voters of Georgia and invite them to contact me with any questions, suggestions or concerns. I am proud to serve Georgia on the PSC and will continue to work to keep utility rates low for Georgia’s families while looking to the future for new energy sources for our state.”

He’s also drawn opposition.

Full release below the fold.
