We’ve been told by several relatively well-informed people that former Gov. Roy Barnes has settled on Wednesday as the day he’ll fish or cut bait in the 2010 race.
So far, no one feels comfortable enough to predict which way the Democrat will jump — whether he’ll attempt the first comeback by an ousted Georgia governor since Gene Talmadge. (Several — including Lester Maddox and Carl Sanders — have attempted returns after constitutionally limited terms.)
An unnamed party has reserved space Thursday in the state Capitol for a “campaign” event, but we’re informed this is not the venue or the day Barnes will use.
We checked, but no one has reserved the Marietta Square — a few blocks from Barnes’ new home — for Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Yet.
Also, the former governor is now scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Cobb County Democratic fund-raiser on June 19.
