Another candidates announces for Congress | Columbia County News-Times

Stephen Simpson announced Wednesday that he will join the crowded field of Republicans hoping to replace Rep. Paul Broun in the 10th Congressional District, which has some Columbia County precincts.

The Milledgeville, Ga., resident made the announcement in Oconee County’s Veterans Park. A press release announcing his candidacy boasted that he and his wife kept their home in Oconee County throughout his 20-year Army career.

He joins a primary race that includes Mike Collins, a businessman and son of a former congressman; state Rep. Donna Shelton; failed 2010 candidate Jody Hice; and party activist Brian Slowinski. The election won’t be held until next summer.

Broun, R-Watkinsville, is running for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
