Special to SEGAZINE
Last week, we told you that U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston was giving off strong signals that he was packing himself as the candidate for Georgia’s GOP establishment in next year’s U.S. Senate race – an antidote to those Republicans who fear the candidate of U.S. Rep. Paul Broun.
Kingston told a Gainesville crowd that Phil Wilheit Jr. would co-chair the fund-raising arm of his Senate campaign. Which was significant, given that Phil Wilheit Sr., a member of the Board of Regents and the governor’s former business partner, will chair Gov. Nathan Deal’s re-elect bid.
