AUGUSTA,, Ga. (WRDW) -- An Augusta commissioner said he is bowing out of the race to fill the mayor's seat.
Joe Jackson said he is now throwing his support behind Fred Russell, who has yet to announce his intent to run.
This will be Deke Copenhaver's last year as Mayor. Jackson is one of two commissioners who had plan to run to take over the job. The other is Alvin Mason.
