Casey Cagle sent out a release today that a number of people who were listed as Reed for Lt. Governor Steering Committee members are asking that their names be removed from the committee because they have decided to endorse Casey. The names are:
Maurice Atkinson (Macon), Bruce Garraway (Gwinnett), Stan Hall (Gwinnett), Christopher Harris (Gwinnett), Ron Johnson (Gwinnett), Josh Moore (Gwinnett), Clint Murphy (Savannah), Patrick Cork (Valdosta), and Nick Thompson (Gwinnett).
I find the release a bit disingenuous. Just searching our site you can find that Maurice Atkinson has been on board Cagle’s campaign since the middle of last year. Likewise, I know Clint Murphy and I know he’s been with Cagle
the whole time. since May or June of last year.
This sounds like a manufactured press release more than anything else. Come one guys, you all can do better than that.
The Gwinnett guys apparently really are just now leaving Ralph. Perhaps just using their names would have been better. As it stands now, the bigger story seems to be poor list maintenance by Reed’s campaign. I know Maurice well (the guy who should be representing me in the Bibb County Commission) and I know he’s been with Cagle since at least June of last year.
