State Senator Harri Anne Smith has been officially given the “boot” by the GOP. As a result, she won’t be allowed to run on the Republican Party ticket. Senator Smith, who is very popular in her district, was disqualified as a Republican candidate. Subsequently, she asked her supporters if they want her to run as an independent in her Senate district that includes Geneva, Dale and Houston counties. To take that route, it will take a petition with names of 3% of the voters in the last governor’s election in the Senate district, or about 1,065, signatures. The deadline for submitting the petition is June 1st. If I had to make a guess, it would be that the Senator will run as an independent and will return to the Senate.
