Cortellino to Run in 12th District

A new face has emerged in one race for US Congress in Georgia. Democrat Caine Cortellino has set his sights on the 12th District. The 27-year-old Chatham County native announced his campaign this afternoon at the St. Pius the Tenth Family Resource Center in front of friends and supporters.

Cortellino says he's focused on jobs, education, healthcare and on unseating Max Burns. "I personally have knocked on 1,562 doors, and they were starting in Cloverdale and Carver Heights," he said. "East side is next on our targets, and we'll be knocking on doors all the way to Athens to make sure people know what we are about."

Cortellino is the 4th Democrat running for the 12th District seat. They'll face off in a July primary.
