11 candidates showed up this morning for their first forum, sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce. Some in the group are well known, while others aren’t as familiar. A few even live outside the district.
The chamber quickly scheduled this forum to replace a speech by retiring Congressman Rodney Alexander, who let them know he would not attend.
More than a hundred came today to hear from the candidates. Each was given a chance to tell something about himself and state his platform.
The primary is October 19th, and if there’s a run-off, it will be November 16th.
