Democratic Candidate for State Senate, Bruce Coker told AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio News that he sees a shift in the Republican control of the Georgia General Assembly this fall.

Coker, who attended Menlo’s Glory Days on Saturday stated that he thinks a major shift is under way that will return control of the Georgia State House and Senate to Democratic hands.  Coker’s optimism is based on the continuing rift between political factions in the state Republican party.  Coker also stated that he looks forward to getting his campaign underway after the July 15th primary as he takes on Republican State Senator Jeff Mullis.  Mullis is seeking his fourth term in representing the 53rd Senate District that includes Chattooga, Walker, Dade and part of Catoosa County.  Coker ran against Mullis in 2006 and was defeated by Mullis.
