Thanks to a tip from a reader, I bring you more bad news for the sitting Lieutenant Governor as reported in the Albany Herald:
ALBANY — At least 86 elected municipal officials have crossed party lines to endorse Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue’s bid for reelection, including three Democrats from Southwest Georgia, according to information released by Perdue’s campaign.
Dougherty County Commissioner Chuck Lingle, Mitchell County Commissioner W. Alton Snipes and Terrell County Commissioner Wilbur Gamble are listed among Democrats who have endorsed Perdue.
Perdue’s Democratic challenger, Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, is from Southwest Georgia. Albany is his hometown.
As usual, Rick Dent provides a pithy retort:
Taylor Spokesman Rick Dent said the lieutenant governor got “the most important endorsement there is in the state of Georgia” Wednesday: that of the Georgia Association of Educators.
Based on Dent’s comment, can we assume the Big Guy will not be seeking any other endorsements?
