Instead of getting into the CIA leak news, Miers or Sam Alito (I will let Erick address that issue), I thought we could let today’s AJC Political Insider get the week’s GA political debate started.
Here are some highlights of this week’s stories:
-Cheney’s stop at Robins AFB for an event with GA Republican officials, including some extra time to stump for Mac Collins at an event where he apparently raised $141,000
-Donations from UPS’ PAC to GOP candidates
-Prior comments from McCain and Norquist on the Indian Casino scandal involving Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, and of course, our own Ralph Reed . . . a story that is already old, but will only get more heated as McCain and the committee attacks this issue.
Also, early voting begins today in some of the local races going on around metro Atlanta and elsewhere. Perhaps that is the most boring news today; however, many of you, I know, care more about what is happening around your local city or county council than news on Washington lobbyists and scandals at the White House. I don’t even know hardly any of the candidates, so let’s hear it if there is someone or something we are missing.
