It’s election day. What’s at stake? Oh, just someone’s political career.
Georgia’s elections feature several candidates who are veteran state political leaders. Losing today means more than just a defeat; it may mean the end, at least temporarily, to someone’s political career, AJC’s Aaron Gould Sheinin writes:
When polls close Tuesday evening at 7 , no more than four of 14 candidates for governor will still have an immediate political future, and that assumes a runoff is necessary in both the Democratic and Republican campaigns. The would-be governors, seven Democrats and seven Republicans, have more than 150 years of combined state and federal government experience.
For many, Tuesday will mark an ending or, at least, a major roadblock to another act in politics.
