The deadline for independent campaigns for spots on the November ballot is at noon today.
We’ve been told that Brad Bryant, appointed last month by Gov. Sonny Perdue to fill out the term of Kathy Cox, will fall short of the 44,000 signatures he needs to have himself placed on a statewide ballot. He’ll come in with 36,000, we hear.
The number of signatures collected in this short of amount of time is still very impressive.
Other independent and third party candidates will be turning signatures in today. We’ll keep you posted on who makes it.
[UPDATE] Ronald added his thoughts on this in the comments.
