Perdue stumps in Albany

August 15, 2002

Saying he is the Republican with the best chance of beating Governor Roy Barnes in the November election, gubernatorial candidate Sonny Perdue campaigned in Albany Thursday.

Greeted by a large crowd of supporters at the airport, Perdue's campaign has been helped by a number of endorsements from state newspapers. The long time State Senator from Bonaire says he is the Republican front runner in next week's primary, and the candidate with the best chance of defeating incumbent Roy Barnes.

"Roy Barnes disenfranchised and disenchanted so many people around this state. We're encouraged about what we hear. This is going to be about people, about voters, not about money. This race is winnable, and I plan to win it. Not much of a politician if you can't kiss a baby, right?"

Sonny Perdue is one of three Republican's in the primary. He will face Bill Byrne and Linda Schrenko in next Tuesday's election.
