This in via the tipline:
September 15, 2010 – Perry, GA – In a press conference this afternoon at the Georgia National Fairgrounds, JB Powell, the Democratic Candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture, received an endorsement from Darwin Carter, a 2010 Republican candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture and former Reagan administration official. This is the only cross-party endorsement from a statewide candidate in over a decade in Georgia politics.
“I am honored to receive Darwin Carter’s endorsement today. We need to move past partisan politics and come together as Georgians, and I look forward to working with Darwin Carter to earn the support of Democratic, Republican and Independent voters this November.”
You can read the full press release on JB Powell’s website. Nothing like some party infighting. I’m sure this will bring Powell a few votes. I just don’t see Gary Black losing this race.
Update: In July Gary Black recieved 425,001 votes. Darwin Carter received 134,022 votes. JB Powell received 289,833 votes. If every person who voted for Carter voted for Powell, he’d still be a bit behind Black. That’s a pretty useless number as not everyone who voted for Carter will follow him in support of Powell and there will be a Libertarian candidate in the field this November as well. I just wanted to put things in perspective.
