Lee May: I'm not running for Congress

For weeks now, there has been speculation that DeKalb County Commissioner Lee May would join Vernon Jones and Connie Stokes in the race to unseat 4th district Congressman Hank Johnson.

Tuesday's Atlanta Journal Constitution put an end to that speculation:

DeKalb County Commissioner Lee May will not run for Congress so he can focus on the county’s deficit.

On Monday, May told the AJC that he decided not to enter the race and finish the remaining two years of his commission term.

A recent poll showed Hank Johnson holding a "dominating" lead over both Jones and Stokes.
