In an interview with The Current, Herring, a lawyer in Savannah (and secretary for the Dartmouth Class of 1980), explains why he is running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Rep. Buddy Carter in the November election for Georgia's first congressional district.
“Mr. Carter is a career politician who has used his time in elected office to enrich himself... Unfortunately, there hasn’t been a Democrat running against him in the First District that has held him accountable. I will.”
Noting that Carter voted to overturn Georgia's election results on January 6 in an effort to keep Donald Trump in office, Herring says, “What happened Jan. 6 and what Mr. Carter did was abhorrent. It’s more than just Jan. 6, of course. It’s what Mr. Carter hasn’t done on health care. It’s what he hasn’t done on education. It’s his vote against the infrastructure bill. So, it’s things he hasn’t done. He hasn’t been a representative for the people of this district. He hasn’t been a leader for anyone in this district. I think the voters know that already. And when I get on television, I’ll certainly remind them.”
