December 6--  Augusta businessman Rick Allen is considering another run for Congress in 2014.

{mosimage}Allen lost in the 2012 Republican Primary runoff to Lee Anderson by 159 votes.  He met with Toombs County Republicans this week and said he hopes to decide early next year if he will try again for the 12th Congressional seat now held by Democrat John Barrow.

In the meantime, he's invoved with a group focused on the nation's debt crisis.

"We have a runaway train here and we have got to fix this debt.  It is going to destroy our economy.  If you go to our website,, you'll see the people involved.  You can sign a petition there and we have over 400,000 signatures so far.  People are serious about this and we're asking for a bi-partisan effort.  This is bigger than Republicans and Democrats and it's got to be solved," Allen says.
