  1. Atticus says:

    Where is the endorsement from former Snellville City Council Member Bruce Garraway? I heard there’s a buffet or two he may be missing out on.

  2. In The Arena says:

    That’s an impressive list of endorsements, but Jason Elam’s the real kicker.

    • I Am Jacks Post says:

      Ummm, who could be more “establishment” than the local party chair and a dude who’s spent the last dozen years serving the incumbent congressman . . . in DC?

      • DriveByDawg says:

        The local party chair who was elected because he wasn’t part of the establishment and old guard.

        • I Am Jacks Post says:

          I’m holding out to see who B.J. Van Gundy endorses. Dude is a political genius the likes of which we’ve not seen in these parts since, well . . . ever. “That creep can roll, man.”

  3. FortesInquitFortunaIuvat says:

    The AJC puts some ink out on the New Blood, and Clay is cut and pasting from a spreadsheet on a blog? It’s like you can feel he’s gonna anounce he’ll be running as an independent by the end of the week.

  4. FortesInquitFortunaIuvat says:

    I have neither said nor implied anything about the campaign is antiquated, dude. I am observing that this caliber of response on Peach Pundit is unaffecting, and that it is indicative of the campaign, dude.

  5. Ahh yes… another fair taxer. So let me get this straight… he’s going to push for the Fair Tax in Washington, but hasn’t even managed to repeal the state income tax here in Georgia in favor of a consumption tax?
