Georgia's lieutenant governor rules out a run for US Senate

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia’s Republican lieutenant governor is ruling out a run for the U.S. Senate in 2022.

Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan made the comments Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“My family and I have talked about it and we’re not going to run for the U.S. Senate seat," Duncan said. “We’re going to stay focused on being the lieutenant governor here in Georgia."

Duncan added that he intends to focus on strengthening the Republican party, aiming “to rebuild this party and refocus GOP 2.0."
