Albany-  Potential candidates for Albany's State Senate seat are lining up. A well known Albany businessman, a Dougherty County Commissioner, and a south Georgia District Attorney are all considering a run for the seat being vacated by Senator Michael Meyer von Bremen.

Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard, businessman Greg McCormack, and District Attorney Ken Hodges all expect to make an announcement by the first of April.

"I want to hear what other people think about my candidacy or potential candidacy whether or not that makes sense to them, whether they feel like they could give me their support both financially and with their vote," said Greg McCormack, an Albany businessman.

"My family and I have been talking and meeting about this as well as a lot of our constituents across the county, we've gotten a lot of input from across the state and I'm very humbled that some folks think that we would be a good fit for that job," said Jeff Bodine Sinyard.

John White, a former state representative has confirmed he will run for the 12th district Senate seat.
