Larry Peterson at the Savannah Morning News reports that former state senator Regina Thomas won’t be able to mount a write-in campaign against U.S. Rep. John Barrow (D-Savannah):
Citing state law, the secretary of state’s office – which oversees elections – ruled that the former state senator from Savannah is ineligible.
If she had been allowed to run, that could have split Democratic voters and boosted the prospects for [Republican Ray] McKinney.
Barrow defeated her in the July 20 primary for the 12th Congressional District, which takes in most of Savannah.
