A pitch in the “inside baseball” game that Georgia politicians play has been thrown and Sen. Josh McKoon of Columbus said Monday he did not throw it.
A Facebook page has “Draft Josh McKoon for Majority Leader” has been created and has more than 130 “likes.”
McKoon said he did not do it in an effort to become majority leader of the Georgia Senate, a position that is being vacated by Sen. Ronnie Chance, who has not sought re-election to the General Assembly.
“I know who is involved and it is not even a constituent,” McKoon said. “It is coming from outside the district.”
Never miss a local story.
McKoon didn’t name who created the social media page.
In fact, McKoon said he is more concerned about winning the District 29 seat in November than a leadership position in the Republican Party. McKoon is facing Democrat Brian Roslund of Pine Mountain.
“I have got Democratic opposition, so I have to re-elected,” McKoon said. “I will worry about the other stuff after the election.”
