UPDATE 2: Looks like just one change, Sen. Grant picked up a challenger from Gray attorney Wilson B. Mitcham, a Democrat. I spoke to him briefly and he's a former ADA and assistant public defender transitioning into private practice who said he'd been mulling a legislative run for a while. He qualified at about 11:30 - right under the wire. That has the potential to be an interesting race.
Interestingly, state Sen. Chip Rogers picked up a challenge from a Democrat named Carolos Lopez. He's listed as a 47-year-old retired Marine and a business owner.
I don't know enough about Mr. Lopez, or the district (Cobb County, birthplace of the greatest Georgians) to know if that could get interesting, but it got my attention.
A few other senators of note have competition as well.
As for the House leadership, of course Appropriations Chairman Ben Harbin has competition in the primary. You have to wonder if Rep. Harbin's oft-delayed DUI case will be a big issue in that campaign.
House Majority Leader Jerry Keen picked up a challenge from a Democrat named Leroy Dumas. But the alleged / rumored / supposed push to replace Speaker of the House Glenn Richardson in Paulding County never materialized. Can't say I'm surprised.

By the way, two wrongs officially make a right now in the Democratic Senate primary.
