Doug Overbey cannot serve as both a sitting judge and a state legislator at the same time, and is therefore not qualified to run against Sen. Raymond Finney for State Senate or hold his current seat in the House.

that Rep. Doug Overbey

that Rep. Doug Overbey cannot serve as both a sitting judge and a state legislator at the same time
