District attorney, other candidates square off at forum

The two candidates in the most highly-contested race in the May 24 general and nonpartisan primary will square of at a political forum here Tuesday night. The event, sponsored by the chamber of commerce and Lamar County Farm Bureau, begins at 6 p.m. Incumbent district attorney Richard Milam and challenger Jonathan Adams, who are locked in a pitched battle, have both confirmed their attendance. That race will be decided in the primary. In the District 3 Congressional race, Republican Jim Pace and Democrat Tamarcus Cook have confirmed. That office is currently held by Rep. Lynn Westmoreland who is retiring. In the U.S Senate race, Democrat John F. Coyne III and Republican Derrick Grayson have confirmed. That seat is held by incumbent Sen. Johnny Isakson who is running and is considered a prohibitive favorite at present. The forum will be moderated by Herald Gazette publisher Walter Geiger.
