Brian Rubenstein supports Sonny Perdue.

I received my copy of the September issue of “James” magazine last week (I don’t know why I received the September issue in October, but that’s another matter).

Inside this issue was a guest column by Brian Rubenstein. Rubenstein is a:

…former communications director for the Democratic Party of Georgia. He was a political appointee at the U.S. Department of Commerce during the Clinton Administration and also worked in the communications department at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.

In other words, he ain’t a Republican.

Rubenstein will be voting for Governor Perdue and he urges others to do the same:

Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t support every position Sonny Perdue has ever taken. However, the same could be said of nearly all the elected officials I have ever pulled a lever for. I am also not suggesting I will support every Republican or even any other Republican on the ticket in November. I am saying you should consider supporting Sonny Perdue for governor, regardless of whether you consider yourself a Democrat, a Republican or an Independent.

How many Democrats share Rubenstein’s view of this race?


  1. Well maybe I’d also be voting for Perdue if he appointed me to the Georgia Holocaust Commission.

    Details details. Omissions omissions. I’ve never met or seen this guy at a Democratic event in the last 10 years.

  2. buzzbrockway says:


    There are Democratic elected officials who’ve endorsed Perdue. Mr. Rubenstein clearly has earned his stripes as a Democrat and he supports Perdue.

    While you may not know anyone who shares Rubenstein’s view, clearly there are many.

    At the bar-b-que cook off in Vienna, Ga this past weekend I helped other Perdue folks get out literature, bumper and lapel stickers. Several people I came into contact with declared themselves democrats but pledged Perdue.

  4. LymanHall says:

    Another former D is going to vote for a Republican governor who also used to be a D. Wow. There’s even a picture of Bill Stephens will a Clinton-Gore sign. Stories like this don’t mean anything in Georgia.

  5. GetReal says:

    My only response to this is “Who is Brian Rubenstein?” Oh, and maybe, “Why should I care what he thinks?”

  6. buzzbrockway says:

    Funny – I have a Republican tell me he won’t vote for Sonny because he’s appointed a few Democrats to State positions and you Democrats tells me this particular Democrat Perdue appointed is not really a Democrat.

    Remember most Georgians are not as partisan as we all are.
