The Governor’s Race

I’m told by credible sources that Bill Byrne and at least one other well known Republican in Cobb County are looking at Governor Perdue’s current vulnerablity and assessing whether or not they should enter the race against Perdue. I’m told that both are unhappy with the Governor and believe that the Governor is currently vulnerable from an intraparty attack.

Personally? I think it would be suicide for anyone to run against Sonny in the primary. He may not have the general election in the bag, but I think he’s got the party behind him. Nonetheless, there are others out there who disagree.

As Drudge would say, “Developing . . . “

    Bull Moose wonders what part of the party is behind Sonny? From what I’ve seen, it’s a very unenthusiastic level of support behind Sonny — it’s kind of in name only type support.

    I’m not encouraging anyone to challenge the Governor, I just think that a potentail primary opponent with the right issues, credibility, and money could make a serious run and maybe even win. If nothing else, a primary challenge may shore up Sonny’s support with the party.

    Erick,I agree with you totally,not only would it be suicide it is not in the best interest of the party.Lets hope the Gov heres the footsteps behind him and starts to mend some fences and gets back on track!!!!

    I with you Bull. I can’t think of any reason to vote for Purdue. He has been a complete failure as governmor. I would love to have a viable alternative.

    I’ve seen you post on several websites (including mine) accusing Perdue of being unworthy of reelection. Why do you think he is a failure?
