Lucas Announces Run for Brown's Senate Seat

State Rep. David Lucas says he will resign from his seat to run for the District 26 State Senate seat held by Robert Brown.

Lucas says he's running to fill Brown's unexpired term, which ends in 2012. But he won;t run until Brown qualifies in his run for Macon mayor, in June.

Lucas says if he wins, he'll focus on bringing more jobs to one area in Georgia that has a lot of potential for big industry.

"Right now, water resources are probably one of the biggest things in the state of Georgia. Twiggs and Wilkinson counties sit on the second largest water active ways in the world. I think that might be able to help them bring more industry into that area."

Lucas say his 37 years of experience in the legislature makes him the best qualified for the job.
