I can’t find the author of this article, but someone is not a fan of Larry Peterson.
The primary really didn’t need any help to be interesting. With its cast of characters, their backgrounds, their individual strengths and weaknesses, it had all the makings of a great race.
The farmer. The businessman. The fighter pilot. The woman lawyer.
It was fine — and fair — the way it was.
Enter Larry Peterson.
The article notes that “Peterson is the political writer for the Savannah Morning News. No stranger to reporting on the 12th District, it became quickly and almost embarrassingly apparent that his stories were becoming a part of the campaign itself.”
Please, sweet Jeezus, let someone catch an Anchorman-esque brawl between these two writers on video. The article gives a pretty concise Bravo TV style summary of the GA-12 race. Enjoy.
