We’ve confirmed that Jerry Shearin, the former chairman of the Paulding County Commission, will pass on a Republican primary challenge next year to U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger, in the new 14th District.
That makes it more likely that former Libertarian presidential candidate and congressman Bob Barr – as a renewed member of the GOP — will take a stab at unseating Graves, who won the spot last year.
But given that we’re on the cusp of the holiday season, when the much of the body politic turns away from politics, don’t look for Barr to make a formal decision until next year.
