The Marietta Daily Journal – Around Town : Pridemore to announce Monday

THE RACE for the 11th District congressional seat being vacated by Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Marietta) is about to get more crowded.

Sources tell Around Town that Tricia Pridemore of Cobb will announce her candidacy at a 5:30 p.m. Monday press conference at Dave Poe’s Barbeque on Whitlock Avenue. Pridemore is former executive director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Development and nearly unseated east Cobb’s Sue Everhart as Georgia GOP Chairwoman two years ago.

Already announced for Gingrey’s seat are former Republican Congressman Bob Barr of Smyrna, Georgia House Majority Whip Ed Lindsey (R-Buckhead) and state Sen. Barry Loudermilk (R-Bartow/Cartersville). Waiting in the wings as another possible candidate is state Sen. Judson Hill (R-east Cobb).

Gingrey plans to run for U.S. Senate.

via The Marietta Daily Journal – Around Town Lee Tumlin needs to ‘articulate’ bond vision but adds ‘I’m all in’.
