Lt. Gov. Reed?

With the gubernatorial race bringing sitting Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor out of that spot, it looks like former Christian Coalition and Georgia GOP head (not at the same time) Ralph Reed is running for Lt. Governor. Many in Georgia credit him for engineering the state Republican’s rise in 2002.

“After much prayer and reflection, and with a heart filled with anticipation for the bright future for our state, today I write you to announce my candidacy for the office of lieutenant governor of Georgia,” Reed wrote.

Reed committed to be a “grassroots candidate [who] will work tirelessly for Gov. [Sonny] Perdue and our Republican team.” Reed, a national figure due to his leadership of the Christian Coalition and work for President Bush’s campaigns, cited his Georgia roots: his upbringing in Toccoa, where he graduated from high school; attendance at the University of Georgia and Emory University; and current status as owner of a political strategy firm in Gwinnett County.

How… umm… interesting. This might actually get more attention than the governor’s race. (Psst – he’s got a ‘blog’, but I wouldn’t really call it a blog right now. No permalinks, only one ‘entry.’ Pretty weak ‘blog’ if you ask me)
