UPDATE: Barrow has filed paperwork declaring his candidacy for Secretary of State. Tweet below. Website and twitter account have been added.
Former Congressman John Barrow said he wants to be the Democratic nominee for Secretary of State in 2018. (In case you’ve forgotten he was the last white Democrat to represent Dixie in Congress).
Barrow made the announcement at a meeting of the Athens-Clarke County Democratic Party.
Now I know it isn’t a direct transition but congressman to Secretary of State seems like a lateral move at best. Regardless, you’d think the Democrats will now have some semblance of a serious slate next year. More importantly, for Barrow at least, 66 doesn’t seem like too old an age to run for governor so maybe there’s a method to his madness.
