Albany- With local elections wrapped up, political thoughts are already turning toward the summer primary.  Lt. Governor Mark Taylor is trailing in the polls behind his democratic Challenger Cathy Cox as the democratic candidate for Governor.

Taylor says he's not worried about the numbers, in fact when he ran for the Senate, preliminary numbers showed his approval rating at seven percent.

"A lot of our support in rural Georgia, they don't ever hear from pollsters, so I'm very confident about our position in the race and we're just blessed to be able to go out and talk about our record," said Mark Taylor.

Albany native, Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor is challenging another South Georgia native, Secretary of State Cathy Cox of Bainbridge, for the right to run against Governor Perdue on the November 2006 ballot.
