In an interview this week, Columbus Mayor Teresa Tomlinson (D), who is leaving office next month and will join an Atlanta-based law firm as a partner, "sounded like a candidate for the Senate seat."
Tomlinson: "I guess it's because I am so seriously thinking about it, right? If I was just dabbling around foolishly, then we would be having a different conversation. and you would be getting different vibes."
She is considering a challenge to Sen. David Perdue (R) and may make her decision regardless of what 2018 governor nominee Stacey Abrams (D), whom she called a friend, decides to do.
Tomlinson: "I am going to look and see if this is my time in this moment for the state and I think that is what every candidate should do. So, I am not really looking at where Stacey or any of the other very formidable candidates are in this process. Because I figure all that will shake out. eventually and the ones who are meant to be there will be here." (WRBL-TV)
