GOP District Caucus

On February 24, 2014, Stone called for a special district caucus to choose a leading Republican candidate to challenge incumbent John Barrow (D) in the general election, rather than a contested primary that could lead to a costly runoff election.[3]

“More candidates almost guarantees you have a runoff scenario. What we need to do in this election is win the seat, not serve our own egos in doing so,"Stone said in a news conference.[3]
