Baldwin County Duo Rusty Kidd & Johnny Grant to seek re-election

Baldwin County’s two members of the Georgia General Assembly have decided to run for re-election

I will definitely be running for the senate again,” said Sen. Johnny Grant, a Republican who will be seeking a fourth term. “I am getting ready to go.”

Grant first bested Democratic challenger Faye Smith in a hotly-contested election in 2004. Since that time, however, Grant has won his last two re- election bids (2006 and 2008) fairly easily.

Grant is the first Republican since Reconstruction to represent Baldwin County in the General Assembly.

Meanwhile, workers for Rusty Kidd hit the streets this week to obtain 1,100 signatures for a petition. Kidd needs the signatures to run in the House of Representatives, which is required for any third-party candidate. Kidd once again will run as an independent.

Qualifying is set for April 26-30. It’s not immediately clear if any local candidates will run again as well.
