|Description||Decatur, GA – In the largest single endorsement yet in the 2006 gubernatorial campaign, 51 Democrats in the Georgia House of Representatives (plus one independent state Representative) have announced their support for Cathy Cox, who is herself a former rural legislator. This broad and diverse group of Representatives runs the gamut from freshman legislators to long-time House members. They also hail from every region of Georgia. |
“Our campaign is about making government work for all the people of Georgia, and I am honored to have so many legislative leaders embracing our call,” said Cathy Cox.
Recent polling demonstrated Cathy Cox’s strength throughout Georgia, revealing that she leads among every demographic and regional group in the Democratic electorate – whites and African-Americans, men and women, young and old, rural, suburban and urban.
“I am honored to have such strong support across Georgia,” said Cox. Cathy Cox also outraised her primary opponent by more than $600,000 during the recent fundraising quarter.
