You know the ad I’m talking about. It’s on as I type this. It is all over cable tv in Macon, bashing Wiggins. It’s his fatal wound.
I have thought all along that Hunstein would win. I don’t think Wiggins is serious competition, despite the potential of that outside money. So why attack him?
I’m actually of the mind that this is bigger than Hunstein. For two elections in a row, outside groups and the GOP have sought to defeat a sitting member of the Georgia Supreme Court. Last time and, I think, this time the GOP has been unsuccessful.
These Hunstein ads, I think, send a message. In addition to curtailing any effect that million dollars could have against her, I think these ads put the Chamber of Commerce, GOP, and others on notice. If you want to fight about the Supreme Court, you’re going to get a fight. I think everyone thought Hunstein would be easy pickings — the old gal won’t throw a low blow. Well, she did. And it was a fatal shot to Wiggins’s testicles.
