Cardwell made no mention of Vernon Jones, the CEO of DeKalb County and the only other Democrat who has expressed interest in the race. But standing behind Cardwell at his announcement was Eddie Moody, the former DeKalb County police chief who said he was ousted by Jones in 2004.
Now, I do have a question on Cardwell. How long do you think it will be before the GOP starts digging through his investigative reporting trying to raise allegations that he was out for partisan motives? I think that’s probably shaky ground, but it’s probably also to be expected.
Cardwell also says he won’t take “special interest” money a la Russ Feingold. We’ll see.
