Liz Carter (Website | Twitter | LinkedIn | Facebook), a Republican who was incensed at Congressman Hank Johnson’s (D-GA) dullardly comments following the House vote to censure U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC), is running against Johnson for the Republican nomination in Georgia’s 4th Congressional District.
Johnson (Website | Twitter | Facebook) is already facing at least one challenger from within his own party: Vernon “Snuggles” Jones (Website | Twitter | Facebook). Additional challenges to Johnson may also possibly come from Connie Stokes and Lee May.
Snuggles is looking at dipping a toe into the race for the 4th Congressional District, a seat currently held by Hank Johnson, who has been suffering from Hepatitis C.
According to B. Camille Kesler, a Jones spokeswoman, Jones has indicated that he has been approached by many people to run and that he is currently “contemplating all his options.”
In a Christmas e-mail to supporters, Jones also wrote that “[a] decision will be made soon as I continue to listen to you and your ideas as to how I can best serve Georgia and the American people[.] I intend to make my plans clear in the near future.”
Those already considering entering the race are DeKalb County Commissioners Connie Stokes and Lee May.
