July runoff elections not the end but just the beginning
Dick Yarbrough
Don’t look now but it is almost time to go back to the polls in Georgia. Either Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle or Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be selected by Republican voters in the runoff on Tuesday, July 24, to be their gubernatorial candidate in the November general election. Cagle, as you know, has had a severe case of blabbermouth and potty mouth. Among things he told Clay Tippins, a former rival in the Republican primary who taped a conversation without Cagle’s knowledge, is that the primary is about who can be the craziest. On that point, I totally agree. Casey Cagle at times has come across as slightly unhinged. I would prefer my governors to be a bit more circumspect.
