U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson says he’s landed the support of former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin in a re-election bid that has drawn two challengers in the Democratic primary: DeKalb County Commissioner Connie Stokes, and former DeKalb CEO Vernon Jones.
Franklin made it official at a “Women for Hank” rally on Saturday. We wouldn’t normally include a campaign-generated photo of something that routine, but the event seems to have also marked the return of Jeff Hullinger, now with WXIA-TV, to Atlanta television.
The former sports specialist will find that, as in baseball, political reporting is simply a matter of calling balls and strikes. Except there is no strike zone, spitballs are permitted, and we umps sometimes can’t see a darned thing.
