Cherokee Tribune – Campaign filings for 11th District puts Barr in lead

MARIETTA — Campaign filings in the race to replace U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey for Georgia’s 11th District show former Congressman Bob Barr in the lead, although Cobb GOP Chairman Joe Dendy said it’s too early to make anything of the numbers.

“It does, however, look like we can expect a very competitive four-way race,” Dendy said.

Barr reported total contributions of $251,782 followed by state Rep. Ed Lindsey (R-Buckhead), who reported $172,898. Marietta businesswoman Tricia Pridemore reported $143,254 and state Sen. Barry Loudermilk (R-Cassville) reported $97,174.

Kerwin Swint, a political science professor at Kennesaw State University, said the numbers are good for Lindsey and Pridemore.

“Barr’s fundraising numbers are expected given his national profile,” Swint said. “I expect this to be a dogfight all the way to next June.”
