Who would have thought that in 2014, the Democratic Party of Georgia would have a slate led by Nunn and Carter? That slate follows Gov. Barnes’ final campaign. Joining Michelle and Jason is Connie Stokes for Lt. Governor. Continuing the throwback theme, she was a Senate Floor Leader for Gov. Barnes.
That appears to be what we’re getting.
Chairman DuBose Porter said Thursday’s announcement from Carter and Stokes represents a “fresh start” for Georgia. Nunn, you will recall, faces nominal and quixotic opposition in the primary.
So what does this mean? That perhaps Democrats are getting their act together enough to present a decent challenge to Republicans in 2014. With the money flowing in for Nunn, a smart young politician running against Deal and Stokes for diversity, I think they could be competitive.
