Griffin Lotson to run Statewide in 2010?

According to Andre Walker over at Georgia Politics Unfiltered, former Lt. Governor Candidate Griffin Lotson is considering a run for State Agriculture Commissioner in 2010. Lotson hails from the coastal Georgia city of Darien & would be the only democrat from that part of the state to run statewide if he chose to.
For months the names of Rand Knight of Atlanta & Dodge County Democrat Terry Coleman, who is Deputy Agriculture Commissioner hae continued to come up as possibilities to replace Irvin. Agriculture is the No. 1 Economic Industry in Georgia & its a surprise that a single democrat hasn't come forward yet to announce a run. I say go for it Griffin?

Coleman would be my top choice then Lotson.

If Knight ran and become the Democratic nominee, I'd simply skip the race when I vote.

Lotson just lost his 10th election and garnered only 19% of the vote in a city council race his own ward. He says he will continue to run until he wins something though.
