While his four would-be GOP challengers are trying to “out-Republican” each other during their primary, 12th District Congressman John Barrow is distancing himself from the Democratic party.
Jim Galloway reported yesterday and today on Barrow’s plans to skip the Democratic National Convention. Today, the AJC’s Daniel Malloy is reporting that Barrow will vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Partisans are likely to call these moves cynical death bed conversions. Others may also note that Jim Marshall was able to hold on to majority Republican GA-8 for several cycles by being a centrist.
Will it work for Barrow? You can pontificate here for now, as we won’t know until November.
