Retired naval officer running for 4th House District | ajc.com
As far as I can tell, Larry Gauses candidacy has been around for a while. He has stuff on his Facebook page as far back as mid December 2009. I also saw a political site that had him and Hank Johnson as contenders for the 4th. The site did not have Republican Liz Carter. A Google search of his name has him making an announcement on his twitter page on August 21, 2009. The Peach Pundit has a post here about it. I do not know exactly when he filed the paperwork, but it seems he is in to win. A quick glance at his site and his Facebook page makes me think he is a true fiscal and social conservative. It also seems that he embraces a populist attitude towards issues. I don’t know how it will play in the 4th. It seems that his Republican challenger, Liz Carter, is a little more moderate, which may play to independents and conservative Democrats. The 4th is looking like the race to watch in metro Atlanta.
