In a discussion of winners and losers the other day, I said Karen Handel is the only one to come out winning from the session. This gives you a good idea why. One of the parts a lot of you will be interested in is this:
The secretary of state also struck out on her own in support of Republican ideology.
Take the issue of requiring photo IDs of those wanting to vote in person. Where Cox publicly opposed the idea, Handel has championed it.
Another is her announcement Tuesday that her staff will begin enforcing immigration law.
“We will soon, in our licensing area, begin utilizing what is called the SAVE Program, Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlement Program, to verify the legal status of every individual applying for a professional license in the state of Georgia,” she said. “It’s only fair and only reasonable until the feds get their act together and really deal with the issue.”
Good for Karen. Giving her the GOP nomination was the smartest thing Republicans in this state have done in a long time.
