Could Macon Democrats Randall & Paris be facing possible Primary Challengers in July?

As the legislative session winds down, all eyes will turn to the 2012 elections & who will challenge who.

In Bibb County, Democrats Nikki Randall & Miriam Paris both could have challengers for their perspective seats in this upcoming July Primary.

Randall, who is the leader of the Bibb County Delegation haven't had a serious challenger for that seat in years & Paris, who won the seat after the late Robert Brown resigned to run for Macon Mayor could possibly;y get another challenge from her last opponent David Lucas in a district that now includes Washington & Hancock Counties.

The one issue that may very well spur challengers for their seats is the proposed Macon-Bibb County Consolidation Plan, depending on who you ask is good or bad for the City & County.

Randall will be a tough out for any potential challenger & Paris, although she enjoyed plenty of crossover support in the special election maybe the easier target given that she only been in office for a few months.

Now I'm not that well informed when it comes to Macon Politics, but the chances are better that 50/50 that both women will receive challengers for their positions in the July Democratic Primary.

The question is who will run against them? Could David Lucas make another run for the State Senate? Could some darkhorse come out of no where & challenge Randall? What about C. Jack Ellis? Ooh so many possibilities!

I'm pretty sure Lucas will challenge Paris again. Barring anything unforeseen ...
As for Randall, I don't know of anyone in her district who might be looking for her job.
