With a H/T to Tyler Jett of the Chattanooga Times-Free Press, GeorgiaPol just learned that Representative Bruce Broadrick (R) is resigning his District 4 House Seat due to health reasons. For obvious reasons, there is no special election date as of the time of posting.
Beau Patton, Whitfield County GOP’s 1st Vice Chair, announced some time ago that he intended to qualify in 2018, so he is a likely contender for a special election. And other GaPol contributors suspect that we will see local elected officials like Dalton Councilman Gary Crews or Dalton Mayor Dennis Mock run.
We’ll update as information becomes available.
