AJC: Reed loses GOP primary, says he won't run again

From "In the end, Ralph Reed couldn't do for himself what he had helped Republicans do all the way up to the White House: Get elected.

Despite the backing of top conservatives including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Georgia Gov. Zell Miller, Reed failed to win Georgia's GOP nomination for lieutenant governor Tuesday. He lost to little-known state Sen. Casey Cagle of Gainesville.

'I'm not focused on being a candidate in the future, but I'm glad I ran,' Reed, former head of the Christian Coalition, told supporters in conceding to Cagle before all of the votes had been counted."
