A lot of truckers like to talk about how they'd change
politics and the government. But one man went beyond talking the talk - he
actually parked his rig and ran for Congress.
Former company driver John Bradbury ran as a Democrat
against seven-term Republican incumbent Nathan Deal for Georgia's 9th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Bradbury didn't win - but on his first attempt at public
office, he captured nearly a fourth of the vote.
The former trucker - who drove a flatbed for Path Trucking
Lines of New York - isn't sure what his immediate plans are following the
election. But he's already thinking about another run at office in two years.
Tune in to "Land Line Now" on XM Satellite Radio on Monday,
Nov. 13, for a complete interview with John Bradbury.
