The District 42 state senator is considering a run for governor.

Would you like to see Decatur’s state senator become the governor of Georgia?

Jason Carter, the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, is considering a run in 2014 on the Democratic ticket and has commissioned a poll to test the waters, according to the Political Insider blog of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

It’s assumed that incumbent Gov. Nathan Deal will seek re-election.

The blog said Deal has come under fire recently for “allegations that Deal’s office played a heavy-handed role in picking the ethics chief who helped weigh complaints against him, and some pushback on Republican efforts to obstruct the Affordable Care Act in Georgia.”

Carter, a lawyer, was elected state senator for District 42 in a May 2010 special election.

Do you think he could win?

    I like Jason but I think he has a long way to go before getting the type of support for a gubernatorial run.
