Son Of Democratic State Representative Qualifies As A Republican

After sixteen years of service in the Georgia General Assembly, state Representative Jay Shaw (D - Lakeland) is retiring to take a seat on the state board of transportation.

His son, Jason Shaw, qualified today to fill house district 176 as a Republican.

Jason Shaw must be considered the favorite to take the seat long held by his father. If Jason Shaw is elected, a 16-year Democratic seat will switch over to the Republican column.
