Stone Seeking Re-election, Not Judgeship

Rumors have recently flown that Senator Jesse Stone, (R) of Waynesboro has been appointed as Judge by Governor Nathan Deal.  Yesterday, Senator Stone released a statement stating to the contrary he will be seeking re-election for District 23 as planned.  The statement is as follows:

“Atlanta – Georgia State Senator Jesse Stone is running for re-election to District 23, which includes 11 counties in East Georgia. Rumors that Senator Stone had accepted a judgeship were incorrect. A surprised Stone confirmed that he had not applied for or been offered the position.  Stone qualified to keep his seat in the State Senate on Monday.”

Sometimes, rumors are just that.
