David Poythress Preps for Governor’s Run ATLANTA (MyFOX ATLANTA) – David Poythress said Georgia is ready to elect a conservative Democrat as governor.
The former commander of the Georgia National Guard was the first Democrat to enter the race last summer, 10 years after his last run for the state’s highest office.
General Poythress said he spent half of his time meeting with voters and the other half raising money. Poythress said he expected he will need up to $10 million to run a strong campaign for governor.
This amount is more than six times what Poythress said he spent 10 years ago.
