Word around the Capitol is that House Majority Whip Matt Ramsey (R-HD-72) is taking “deliberate steps” toward a run at the 3rd Congressional Race. Ramsey is smack dab in the middle of the 3rd district, geographically, so that could be a possible factor in his consideration. Earlier, we told you about former State Rep. Jeff Brown considering it via his forming of an exploratory committee.
Of course, with Representative Ramsey potentially leaving the House to stump to become the next gentleman from Georgia’s 3rd District, it open up a race for House Majority Whip. House rules indicate this should happen upon any announcement from Ramsey. If this does transpire, who will throw their hat into the ring in order to move into the inner circle of House Leadership?
