ATLANTA (AP) — The regents of Georgia’s public university system will name their pick for its next chancellor on Tuesday.
Former Gov. Sonny Perdue has expressed interest in the job.
A 19-member board reviewed by Gov. Brian Kemp in recent weeks is expected to name a single finalist to lead the system’s 26 universities. The Board of Directors will vote later on whether to ratify its choice.
Sonny Perdue was Georgia’s first Republican governor in more than a century and served as Secretary of Agriculture under President Donald Trump. His cousin, former U.S. Senator David Perdue, is challenging Kemp in the Republican primary for governor.
