A crowded GOP primary race for a Brookhaven-based state House seat got heated Monday, with a supporter of one candidate filing an ethics complaint against another candidate in the race.
Will Kremer, former chairman of the Georgia Association of College Republicans, filed the complaint alleging that House District 80 candidate Catherine Bernard violated Georgia’s campaign finance laws by not fully disclosing how she has spent more than $8,000 in campaign funds over the past two years.
Bernard did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Kremer has canvassed for one of Bernard’s opponents in the race, attorney Meagan Hanson. The third candidate for the seat in the May 24 primary is longtime resident Alan Cole.
The North DeKalb County district is one of a few in the state considered politically competitive both in the primary and the November general election. It is currently held by Democratic state Rep. Taylor Bennett.
