According to political insiders and friends of Bob Barr, the former Congressman is contemplating returning to Washington.

According to sources Barr would return to the Republican platform and challenge US Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger for the newly designed 14th district which will include Floyd and Gordon Counties. Bill Crane, who is close to Barr said that an independent group has been assembled to conduct surveys and explore the options of a return for Barr. He added that he would expect either a yes or no from the former Congressman by Thanksgiving.

The seat is currently held by Phil Gingrey, but will be moving because of the newly designed district maps.
