ATLANTA (AP) - Ten Republicans will be on the ballot in Georgia for the state's presidential preference primary.
The Georgia Republican Party has submitted a letter indicating the candidates whose names will appear on the March 6 ballot. They are: Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Gary Johnson, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Buddy Roemer, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.
State Democratic Party officials have already submitted Barack Obama's name to Georgia's secretary of state. The president is seeking a second term and is not facing primary opposition.
Georgia election law requires the secretary of state's office to publish the lists of each party's candidates on its website during the fourth week immediately preceding the date on which the presidential preference primary is to be held.
