It’s hard to believe that within six months Chattooga County residents will be headed to the polls once again.  In July of 2010 voters will be going to the polls to vote in the Primary for several important races.

Most notably is the race for Governor.  On the Republican side there are several candidates running including Karen Handle, Nathan Deal and John Oxendine.  On the Democratic side there are several candidates as well including former Governor Roy Barnes, Thurbert Baker and David Poythress along with DuBose Porter.

In the 53rd Senate District State Senator Jeff Mullis, a Republican from Chickamauga, will be up for re-election and in the 11 th District for the Georgia House, State Representative Barbara Massey Reece, a Democrat from Menlo, will be up for re-election.
