Georgia Special Election for House Seat
Georgia Governor Nathan Deal is expected to call for a special election in January to replace Georgia House Representative Len Walker who has accepted a ministerial position with a north Georgia chapel.
Tom Kirby will campaign for Walker’s District 107 seat. Kirby said Walker is expected to resign his term at the year-end and the governor will then call for a special election.
The seat will have to be contested again in November 2012 under the new District 114.
The change is a result of redistricting.
