Don't count Gubernatorial Candidate Mark Taylor out yet

October 25, 2006

Albany-  Gubernatorial Candidate Mark Taylor campaigned in his hometown Wednesday afternoon hoping to make up ground in the polls.  The latest poll out Wednesday shows Taylor trailing Governor Sonny Perdue by nearly 20 percent. 

Taylor is also behind in campaign contrabutions, but he hopes to pick up donations at a fundraiser at the Albany Museum of Art Wednesday night.  Taylor says, don't count him out of the race yet. 

"In 1998 I wasn't expected to be elected Lt. Governor. In 2002 other democrats like Max Cleland and Roy Barnes were not reelected, I was reelected. Nobody expected me to win the primary this summer, the only poll that matters is the poll that will be taken November seventh," said Lt. Gov. Mark Taylor, (D) Gubernatorial Candidate. 

Wednesday afternoon, Taylor joined south Georgia law enforcement personnel for an appreciation luncheon. 

Mark Taylor got an additional boost in support at a fundraiser last night in Atlanta when the Rev. Jesse Jackson showed up.
