John McCain’s visit to Atlanta to help prop up his campaign war chest was met with a small protest:
More than 50 protesters marched in front of the Marriott Marquis on Monday, shouting “Bush, McCain, same thing!”
The protesters were a melding of groups from organized labor, seniors and anti-war organizations. They competed for space and attention with about a dozen young McCain backers.
As the Republicans shouted “McCain!” the protesters added, “Shame!”
Jane Kidd and David Adelman were nearby to represent Georgia’s Democrats:
Across Peachtree Center Avenue, Georgia Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kidd and state Sen. David Adelman (D-Atlanta) held a news conference to add a more official voice of protest.
Kidd blasted McCain for only coming to the state to raise money and not to meet with regular voters.
“Instead of listening to Georgians, John McCain chose to talk with people who have given him thousands of dollars,” she said.
Of course, as has been noted on this site before, John McCain received some donations thanks to a fund raising letter from not so golden boy Ralph Reed.
I’m sure we’ll see more of John McCain in Georgia as November grows nearer and Jim Wooten has to stop covering his ears and yelling “no no no” and confront the dreaded fact that indeed… Georgia is in play.
