Albany -- State Senator Michael Meyer Von Bremen says he thinks Cathy Cox will support Mark Taylor in the Georgia Governor's race, despite a frosty relationship between the two.

Taylor defeated Cox for the Democratic nomination for governor in a rough campaign that featured personal attacks from both sides.

Cox told State leaders she will not be at the Georgia Democratic Party Convention this weekend in College Park. Cox has yet to appear with Taylor, and insiders say there are still bitter feelings between the two camps.

Meyer Von Bremen, a Taylor supporter, says he has faith Cox will back the Big Guy. "I've been through a very rugged campaign before myself. When you finish you want some time off. I can't speak for whether or not that's the situation with her, but this race now is not about Mark and Cathy."    

Meyer Von Bremen says he may not be at the State Party Convention himself, because the date and location was decided just a couple of weeks ago, and he had plans to campaign this weekend.

The rift has the attention of the state party. Even former President Jimmy Carter stepped in to help broker a truce between Cox and Taylor.

With an assist from Carter, a lawsuit that has kept the camps of Lieutenant Governor Mark Taylor and Secretary of State Cathy Cox at odds was been settled. The campaign became rough, and a Taylor supporter sued a Cox's press aide, Peter Jackson, for libel.

 Taylor defeated Cox in July in Georgia's Democratic gubernatorial campaign and the two pledged to work together to unite the party to defeat Republican Governor Sonny Perdue.

But the lawsuit filed by Benjamin Cawthon remained a bitter point of contention. Cox has yet to appear with Taylor, feeding the belief that the relationship between the two remains frosty.
