Paul Rish, until recently the head of the Bibb County Republican Party, will run for Congress here in the 8th District, he said this morning.
Coverage on the main site.
UPDATE: Angela Hicks, a local business woman, is planning to run too, unless one of several local GOP politicians with more experience and name recognition pull an about face and get into the race.
I hear a local pastor may run, too, which would mean three GOP candidates taking their first shots at elected life in this race.
It looks like the local grassroots is standing up and saying "If one of you guys won't challenge Marshall, we will."
From the comments: "Should be more like, 'if you guys don't want a beat down, I'll take one.'"
