A former U.S. Army Ranger who has lived in Columbus for 16 years has announced that he will seek the Democratic nomination to fill the U.S. Senate seat soon to be vacated by retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
Todd Robinson, who served with the 3rd Ranger Battalion, 75th Ranger regiment at Fort Benning, said he first thought of running when Congress was playing partisan politics with the so-called “fiscal cliff” issue last year.
“I felt that the politicians needed to be held responsible,” he said. “If they could have prevented that, they should have. Instead of me just talking about, I’m moving forward and doing something about it.”
