GNB Update

It's Monday...Back from your three-day Easter Weekend...Here's the news...

More candidates for top statewide political office...

Former Dougherty Judicial Circuit District Attorney Ken Hodges tells the Albany Herald in its Sunday edition that he's close to deciding on a possible run for the Attorney General's Office. He says that he's "99 percent sure" that he would seek the position that current Attorney General Thurbert Baker is giving up in 2010. Baker recently announced that he'll run for governor next year. Meanwhile, state Senator Seth Harp (R-Midland) announced his candidacy for insurance commissioner late last Thursday. A formal announcement is expected to come sometime this week.

The race for Governor in 2010 is off to a fast start. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Attorney General Thurbert Baker, Secretary of State Karen Handel, and Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine are among those who declared their candidacy for the state's top post next year. The Georgia Legislative Watch has an updated list of who's running for governor by clicking here.

You soon could be paying more to fill your car tank with gas. AAA Georgia says that the price of gas in the state rose 12 cents in the last month. It said that Monday's average price was just under two dollars a gallon. Just last year, the statewide average was just below $1.50 per gallon. The auto club also says the price for midgrade gasoline in Georgia is just over two dollars, while premium costs nine cents more.
