Shafer makes lieutenant governor bid official

Posted By on Mon, Dec 22, 2008 at 6:17 PM

Just received from state Sen. David "Border War!" Shafer, R-Duluth:

With Casey Cagle's decision to run for Governor, Georgians must elect a new Lieutenant Governor in 2010. I wanted to let you know that, with the support of my family and the encouragement of my colleagues in the General Assembly, I will seek this office.

I have filed paperwork creating a campaign committee so that we can prepare for the effort. Chuck Clay will serve as chairman of the committee, and Bartow Morgan will serve as treasurer. Chuck is a former Senate Republican Leader and past State Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party. Bartow is the CEO of The Brand Banking Company, Gwinnett County's oldest and largest community bank.

Shafer says the campaign will formally launch after the legislative session ends. He's holding a start-up fundraising event, however, on Thursday, Jan. 8, 2009, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the 49th Floor of One Atlantic Center. If you want to help with his campaign, send him an email.
