DuBose Porter Is Running For Governor Of Georgia

DuBose Porter urges everyone to vote for him in the Democratic Primary on July 20.

Born in Dublin, Georgia, DuBose graduated from Dublin High School and received his undergraduate degree from Davidson College. DuBose interned with Senator Sam Nunn in Washington, D.C. Witnessing Senator Nunn's ability to help others convinced DuBose to devote his life to public service. DuBose earned his law degree from Cumberland School of Law and returned home to practice law.

He later went into the newspaper business in Dublin. He became a small business owner with forty employees, creating a product six days a week.

DuBose was elected at age 28 to the Georgia State House of Representatives. He served as Floor Leader for Governor Zell Miller. DuBose was elected Speaker Pro Tempore of the House of Representatives in 2003 and Leader of the House Democratic Caucus in 2005. He has served as chair of the Education Committee and the Higher Education Committee. He has also served on numerous other committees: Appropriations, Agriculture and Consumer Affairs, Rules, and Ethics.

DuBose believes a strong economy fosters strong families. DuBose has been married for 26 years to Carol Dodd of Wrightsville. DuBose and Carol have four sons, Stephen, 24; Guyton, 21; and twins Asa and Inman, 20. DuBose and all four boys are Eagle Scouts. DuBose and his family are avid outdoorsmen. DuBose, Carol, and the boys are active members of the First United Methodist Church in Dublin, where DuBose served on the Administrative Board and Carol teaches Sunday School.
