The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:
Former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson waited until May 1 to make her formal entry, delayed in part by Stacey Abrams’ deliberations about her future. Clarkston Mayor Ted Terry jumped in last week, promising to carry the progressive flag.
But now we’re hearing of another potential contender who could further diversify the Democratic field.
Matt Lieberman is an entrepreneur, author and former educator. He’s also the son of former U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman, who served as Al Gore’s running mate in the 2000 presidential contest but was an independent by the end of his political career. We’re told that Lieberman is seriously considering a bid, telling friends he’s “fed up” with Perdue.
Noteworthy #GASen news.
Matt Lieberman, a businessman, author, and son of former U.S. Senator @JoeLieberman (I-CT), is actively considering a bid against U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA).
