Miriam Paris to Challenge Sen. Lucas in 2014
Politics

For the third time in three years, Miriam Paris will be running for state senate in 2014.

The former Macon City Council president announced today she's running for the District 26 seat now held by David Lucas.

In 2011, she beat Lucas in a runoff for a special election on the senate seat.

She held the seat for barely a year but helped pass Macon-Bibb consolidation.

Then last year, Lucas beat her in a rematch.

Paris made a brief statement this morning at Coleman Park downtown, but would not take any questions.

The senate district covers Hancock, Twiggs, Washington and Wilkinson counties along with parts of Bibb, Houston and Jones counties.

Paris was elected to the Macon council in 2006 and served five years. She's a real estate agent and a Macon native.
