Lt. Governor Mark Taylor (D) spent the first half of 2006 winning the right to be challenge Governor Sonny Perdue (R) in this November’s election. The second half of the year may be a bit tougher.
Perdue has a 53% to 39% advantage over Taylor in the latest Rasmussen Reports election poll in Georgia. That’s not much different that our last poll before Taylor’s primary victory. As if a 14-point lead wasn’t enough, Perdue began the general election campaign with $9 million in his campaign war chest while Taylor had just over $1 million.
