I don’t know about you, but I spell it S-O-N-N-Y.
Gov. Sonny Perdue said today he was just “having fun” – not threatening a veto – when he told an Atlanta radio station last week that a bill which would pave the way for the Sunday sales of beer and wine would have a tough time getting his signature.
At the same time, Perdue said he stood by his comments on Q-100.
“I think it will take a lot of persuasion to get my vote,” Perdue said today following an appearance at Georgia State University.
Perdue said it is “not respectful for a chief executive to talk about vetoes” and encouraged state lawmakers to have a free-flowing debate on the issue.
“It’s not my responsibility to send smoke signals to the General Assembly,” he said.
“But I would not have introduced that legislation had I been in the Senate I will simply say that,” Perdue continued.
I’m glad to hear him back down from his earlier remarks.
