Biography

Eric Johnson (born August 20, 1953) is an American politician that served in the Georgia State Senate representing the 1st District, comprising all of Bryan and Liberty counties and part of Chatham County. He resigned his seat in 2009, after years in the Georgia General Assembly. He was a candidate for Governor of Georgia, looking to succeed term-limited Sonny Perdue in 2010. A Republican, he was first elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 1992, giving up his seat after one term to run for the state senate. He was reelected to the state senate in 1996. His colleagues voted him as the Minority Leader in 1998 and served until 2003. In 2003 following the 2002 election of the first Republican Governor in over 130 years, several Democrats changed parties and Republicans gained the state senate majority. Eric was elected as the Senate President Pro Tempore. The Republican majority stripped Democratic Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor of most of his powers, so for all intents and purposes, Johnson served as lieutenant governor. The power of the lieutenant governor was restored back to current lieutenant governor Casey Cagle, a Republican, in 2007.
