Fmr. Sheriff Victor Hill Attempting Political Comeback Against Valencia Seay

Throughout the day, I've been monitoring the candidates qualifying for office this year using the Secretary of State's candidate qualifying database.

Monday afternoon, a name familiar to a lot of folks in Clayton County (as well as many people across the metro Atlanta area) appeared on the Democratic primary ballot in state Senate district 34 -- Victor Hill.

Victor Hill served as sheriff of Clayton County before being defeated in the Democratic primary by Kem Kimbrough two years ago.

Clayton County Democratic Party Chairman Kevin Thomas confirmed that Victor Hill is indeed running for state Senate against incumbent Valencia Seay. Seay, who has battled with her health during the 2010 legislative session, qualified for re-election earlier Monday morning.
