LEE COUNTY, GA (WALB) - After mulling it over, a South Georgia state representative has decided not to run for state Senate.
Ed Rynders considered running for the District 13 Senate seat being vacated by Joe Carter who decided to run for a judgeship. Rynders told us he'll continue to focus on his constituents as the representative for District 152.
"I thought that the short campaign cycle didn't give me the opportunity to run the kind of campaign I'd like to run which is grassroots, get out and meet the people," said Rynders.
Rynders says it was a hard decision that his family helped him make but he feels good about the committees he's on in the House including appropriations, transportation and health. He says there's still plenty of work to do.
