September 26-- Former U.S. congressman John Barrow announced on Monday he will run to become the Georgia Secretary of State.
“Today, we have too many people in Atlanta who act like they do in Washington; who put partisan politics ahead of what’s in the best interest of Georgia,” Barrow said in a news release. “As a county commissioner and a member of Congress, I’ve always put Georgia first, and that’s what I’ll do as our Secretary of State.”
Congressman Barrow represented our area as the 12th District Congressman before he was defeated by Congressman Rick Allen.
Elections for the Secretary of State will be held Nov. 6, 2018.
