Cobb County Commission Chairman Sam Olens (R) will run for Attorney General instead of Governor as some had expected. Also State Senator Judson Hill (R) & Edward Lindsay (R) will run for the post as well.
For the Dems only State Rep. Rob Teilhet (D) has announced. Other possibilities are Albany Circuit D.A. Ken Hodges (D). The one guy who would be a force to be reckoned with for Attorney General is Jim Butler (D) of Columbus (picture on the right). Butler has been active in Georgia Politics for a long time. His record of taking on powerful corporations, etc, would make him the ideal candidate for the democrats for Attorney General. I like Teilhet, but he in my opinion would be better served running as Secretary of State.
