Republican physician and state Rep. Ben Watson announced Tuesday that he will run for the open Senate seat currently held by Sen. Buddy Carter, R-Pooler, who announced Monday a campaign for Congress.

That seat is currently held by U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, who announced last week he will seek the open U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Saxby Chambliss, a Georgia Republican who says he won’t seek re-election.
