Barnes Receives Endorsement Of Key Atlanta Dems; Sun Rises In East

The coronation of Roy Barnes to be the Democratic nominee continues:

Former Gov. Roy Barnes’ re-election effort will be endorsed this morning by a trio of key Democratic leaders, Barnes’ campaign said.

Former Atlanta mayors Shirley Franklin and Andrew Young, plus Brooke Jackson -Edmond, daughter of former Mayor Maynard Jackson, will announce their support of Barnes’ candidacy at a 10 a.m. news conference at the Capitol.

    Hey Icarus, I like how you included Maynard Jackson in the tag line.

    While we’re doing endorsements from the grave, the FASSOP PAC (That’s “Former Austin Scott Supporters for Otis Putnam Political Action Committee”) hereby announces that Thomas Jefferson and Ronald Reagan are throwing their support and reputations behind the campaign of Brunswick’s favorite Wal-Mart employee.

    • Icarus says:

      Because Maynard Jackson Inc. is still an industry in City of Atlanta contracting.

      Look at most concession bids won at Hartsfield-Jackson airport. They’re won by one of those three families in this endorsement announcement.

      • ZazaPachulia says:

        And Ronald Reagan Inc. is still the top-selling brand in the Grand Old Party. My preferred Atlanta medium, Ms. Isabel Wynn, told me that The Gipper is 100-percent on board with Otis Putnam and the results only he can bring to Georgia.

    • Glen Ross says:

      I’m waiting for Teddy’s Roosevelt’s endoresment, personally. If Otis pulls that one, then you can come talk to me.

  2. ZazaPachulia says:

    Baker, DuBose and General Poythress are all still trying to wake up from the nightmare that began the day that King Roy decided to throw his hat in the ring.

  3. Technocrat says:

    And you still don’t believe that 18>23% of minorities will cross over and vote for Oxendine in General. Just as they have for past 12 years.

  4. Glen Ross says:

    This was really just a matter of time before this happened. I wonder how long they waited before releasing this.
