Broun announces congressional run, but has yet to qualify

Dr. Paul Broun, the physician who represented at least part of
Athens-Clarke County in Congress for seven years, announced his
intention to seek Georgia’s 9th District congressional seat Wednesday on
a Gainesville radio station, but had not formally qualified to run as
of Wednesday evening.




According to a report from WDUN-AM in Gainesville, Broun said on the
station’s “Morning Talk” show that he “had conservatives all over this
district for almost a year now encouraging me to run because they know
that I have represented half of the counties of this district.”




Broun went on to tell the radio station, according to its report,
that he was challenging incumbent Doug Collins, a fellow Republican,
because Collins is an establishment Republican who “has the values of
John Boehner, Paul Ryan, Washington, D.C.”
