April 19, 2004

 (Atlanta-AP) -- Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor filed paperwork today allowing him to begin raising money to run for governor. Taylor -- a Democrat -- has been widely considered an all-but-official candidate for the seat held by Governor Perdue -- a Republican -- since 2003.

But top aides say the paperwork -- filed with the Secretary of State's office this morning -- is not a signal that Taylor is ready to kick off the 2006 race more than two years before the election.

Doug Heyl -- a spokesman for the Taylor's campaign -- says the candidate just needs to get any early start on fundraising to keep up with the incumbent.

Perdue had $2.8 million in his campaign account, according to reports filed in December. Taylor has been elected lieutenant governor twice and represented Albany in the state senate for eleven years.
