An anonymous listener asked Macon Me Curious why, if Macon-Bibb County Commissioner Gary Bechtel had to resign from his post to run for a General Assembly seat this year, Brian Kemp did not?

That’s a question a lot of Georgians have been asking this election season: given that the secretary of state oversees elections in the state, why doesn’t Brian Kemp have to step down from that position as he seeks to become governor?

Cathy Cox is well suited to answer that question. Today Cox is the dean of Walter F. George School of Law At Mercer University in Macon. She’s also run for governor as a Democrat while serving as Georgia’s secretary of state.
