GaGo10 – Now Vernon Jones?!?

You have to be kidding me.  Vernon Jones trying out for governor?  He doesn’t have a shot in hell.

From Jim Galloway at the AJC,

The basic message in each: Stay tuned. One contains a broad hint that Jones thinks the Democratic field for governor, even with Roy Barnes, isn’t quite what it should be yet.

The emails make it look like he’s playing the same cat and mouse game Barnes did, which led to Barnes announcing.  Jones doesn’t have a shot in hell – he lost to Jim Martin in the Senate primary, and as much as I like Jim I never saw him as a top tier candidate.  He’ll be another voice at a debate taking away time from Democrats with a decent shot.  Maybe if he tried to run for something like Secretary of State…well, he’d still lose.

Once again we have the Georgia tendency to clear the bench for an all out primary war for Governor.  The GA Democratic Party seems to be more personality/ego driven than anything else – why run for a smaller spot when you can be the big dawg.  Unreal.
