NACDS-PAC Update: Pharmacist Bests Surgeon in Georgia Congressional Primary Runoff

By: | Jul-23-14

<p>&ldquo;I&rsquo;ve only been to Washington six times in my life, believe it or not, and five of those have been within the past year,&rdquo; pharmacist, pharmacy owner and Georgia State Senator Buddy Carter told television station WTOC on Tuesday night. By the look of things, he better look into joining a frequent flyer program.<br />
<br />
Carter defeated Dr. Bob Johnson &ndash; a surgeon &ndash; in a Republican primary runoff, earning the right to face Democrat Brian Reese in the general election for Georgia&rsquo;s First Congressional District seat. Reese prevailed in his Democratic primary runoff yesterday.<br />
<br />
The winner will succeed U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA), who ran for the U.S. Senate but was defeated by businessman David Perdue yesterday in a Republican primary runoff.<br />
<br />
The NACDS Political Action Committee (NACDS-PAC) has supported Carter&rsquo;s campaign.</p>
