POST UPDATED: And we have a winner. Not just any candidate, but a great one -- Rex Templeton steps up to the plate for Sen. District 1 seat (Kemp)
Rex Templeton, Jr., chairman of the Chatham County Democratic Committee, has announced his candidacy for the District 1 seat in the Georgia Senate.
The seat is currently held by Sen. Eric Johnson (R-Savannah), who had been drawn into the district with Sen. Rene Kemp (D-Hinesville).
Earlier this week Kemp announced his withdrawal from the race for personal health reasons. The veteran legislator has been battling prostate cancer.
Templeton is currently the Chairman of the Chatham County Democratic Committee, one of the best organized and most effective Democratic Committees in the state.
He has served on the Executive Committee of the Democratic Party of Georgia and is a Charter Member of one of my favorite groups, the Georgia delegation of the Democratic Leadership Council (DLC).
He is a past delegate to theDemocratic National Convention.
Rex and his wife Dee Ann live in Savannah with their three young children.
Let's all help Rex make up for lost time.
Mae. If you don't know her, then you can't say you've met the best. Mae is the best in the west, north, east and of course the south. When Mae speaks, Sid listens (actually, I say "Yes ma'am").
Rex is on a short fuse. Send your contributions to:
