ATLANTA — The Republican race for the chance to challenge Democratic Congressman John Barrow could get more crowded if state Rep. Delvis Dutton decides to enter it.

“We’re checking into it. We’re getting a lot of calls on it,” he said Wednesday. “But there’s been no desire, no commitment at all.”

Dutton, a Savannah native who lives in Glennville, would bring political experience to the contest after winning a special election in 2011 to the state House of Representatives. After winning re-election in 2012, he unsuccessfully challenged the chairwoman of the House Republican Caucus, Donna Shelton of Dacula who had endorsed him in his 2011 special election, but he was decisively trounced in the caucus balloting.
