Hot out of the box from State LP HQ!
So far this has been picked up by the Athens and Rome newspapers, guess we can expect the Atlanta media to report on it when the SecState updates it's candidate website. Remember, it's not news until the SecState says so.
The readership is invited to attend the qualifying session if you have time or inclination and the best place to park is the parking deck on the east side of the towers on Jesse Hill Drive. It's an excellent opportunity to meet our 10 statewide candidates as well as two State House Candidates that will be on the ballot this November.
