McMickle jumps in
Another familiar name has jumped into the race to succeed Stephanie Tubbs Jones in Congress: Rev. Marvin McMickle, pastor of Antioch Baptist Church. McMickle ran for this seat in 1998, losing to Tubbs Jones, and ran for U.S. Senate in 2000. Yesterday, I called Marcia Fudge (see post below) the front-runner for the job, and she probably still is, but McMickle is also a strong, well-known candidate.
Click here to see our piece about McMickle in our Influentials issue this April. We've also written about two of the other candidates: Jeff Johnson, in our 35th anniversary issue this December, and Bill Patmon, in our coverage of the 2005 mayor's race (click here and scroll down).
