The Democratic Governors Association just confirmed that it sent an additional $1 million to Georgia this week in support of Democrat Roy Barnes’ return as governor.
The DGA had already given $500,000 to the state Democratic party in August.
So somebody doesn’t believe that SurveyUSA poll, released Monday, that showed Republican Nathan Deal with an 11-point lead.
Emily Bittner, spokeswoman for the DGA, characterized the cash infusion as a show of faith in Barnes’ November chances. Bittner also referenced the AJC article that this morning outlined the precarious nature of Deal’s personal checkbook.
“[Deal’s] personal finances are in no shape for him to run the state’s finances,” Bittner said.
The Republican Governors Association has been spending a boatload on TV ads in Georgia, attacking Barnes – but a total amount hasn’t yet been disclosed.
