No one is sure what Gov. Perdue is going to do after his term of governor is up. Journalism maybe.
At about 9:30 p.m., the governor snuck into the Senate’s press gallery to hang out with members of the print media. He promised to look into expanding the cramped Senate quarters, where they have toiled for the past 40 days.
And, in Perdue fashion, he was the center of attention and the life of the little press party.
“Hey Mullis,” he shouted at Sen. Jeff Mullis (R-Chickamauga). “We need two Cokes and a Diet Coke.”
Mullis retreated to the Senate break room and returned with the treats.
Mullis traditionally provides drinks and snacks for members of the media.
