Georgia Senate candidate opens campaign headquarters
Former State Senator Miriam Paris’s new H-Q is at 1044 Washington Avenue in Macon.
She’s running against incumbent David Lucas.
Paris took office in 2011, winning a special election after Robert Brown’s death…
However, she lost her spot to Lucas in 2012.
Paris says she’s learned a lot from that loss, and hopes to use that to win the election this year.
“You learn a tremendous amount of knowledge when you lose,” said Paris. “I really learned a lot. You know how hindsight is 20/20. But it was amazing. It was a great thing. I think I grew a lot. I really realize and understand the importance of really staying in touch with the constituency.”
Paris hopes to be aggressive at the grassroots level with voters.
She said it’s great to finally have a place to meet and plan for the upcoming election.
