Congratulations to Paul Broun. I’m eating crow for breakfast this morning, as I (like most others) predicted a Whitehead cakewalk. One key to victory appears to have been liberal Athens, where Broun received nine times the number of votes that Whitehead earned — another surprise to me.
Speaking of Athens, it’s no surprise that the ABH isn’t a big fan of Paul Broun or his conservative politics, and it’s doubtful that his Athens residency will earn him any favors with the paper in the future. However, I was a bit surprised to see it beginning already, with a picture of Broun on the front of the paper today which makes him look like he suffers from palsy or some such thing.
It’s below; take a look at the ABH’s version of your first look at the 10th CD’s new Congressman.
I know that the ABH has better photographers than this, and that they take enough photos when on a location that they had to have had better pics to choose from. Nice start to coverage of the Paul Broun era in GA 10.
