I signed up for e-mail from the Vernon Jones campaign for Congress this morning.
Prior to his decision to challenge two-term Democrat Hank Johnson, the former DeKalb CEO and former candidate for U.S. Senate apparently had been considering yet another statewide race – because this was the immediate response sent to the in-box:
Welcome to the Vernon Jones for Secretary of State Campaign. I am honored to have your support of my candidacy.
The glitch may have been fixed. The following was just received, in the last five minutes, from the same account:
As I told you previously, I would let you know my political plans for the future. Today at 2pm, I will be announcing my bid for the Fourth Congressional District Seat in the United States Congress.
Johnson is to announce his re-election bid on Saturday.
One wonders if we’re about to have a discussion about religion. One observant reader notes that on Jones’ new web site, the candidate says “Georgia needs…someone that is humble, a Christian, qualified and experienced, and a Representative who will exemplify statesmanship in the United States Congress.”
Johnson is Buddhist.
