Bulloch mum on choice for Senate

Patti Dozier

THOMASVILLE — The former District 11 state senator will not publicly support or endorse a candidate in the February runoff for the Senate seat. He will make his choice known at the polls.

“I’m going to vote for somebody,” said John Bulloch, a Thomas County Republican and longtime state senator and representative. He encouraged others to vote in the Feb. 5 runoff.

Mike Keown, a Thomas County resident, and Dean Burke, of Bainbridge, both Republicans, were the top vote-getters in a Jan. 8 special election. Keown and Burke outdistanced four other candidates.

Bulloch said he knows both candidates and will support the person elected.

“I think we have two good, qualified people who have offered themselves, and the people in the 11th District will decide who will represent them,” Bulloch said.
