Gov. Sonny Perdue has picked state Rep. Jim Cole, R-Forsyth, to replace Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, the AJC's James Salzer reports.
Handel announced last week that she'd resign to focus on her gubernatorial campaign.
Republican Rep. Jim Cole, a three-term lawmaker from Forsyth in Middle Georgia, has been picked by Gov. Sonny Perdue to be the next Secretary of State. [...]
Cole, 38, will serve out of the final year of Handels term. He will also run in 2010 for a full, four-year term.
Cole has been on Perdues House team for three years, carrying and pushing the governors legislation.
UPDATE: Says here that, sorry, ladies, Cole's taken. He's a former businessman who now serves as the assistant athletic director at Mercer University.
