90. I Know Georgia

I know Georgia has a lot of counties because I have personally visited all 159.

It's not enough for a candidate to say they've called a county. It's not enough for a candidate to say they have a supporter in a county. It's not enough for a candidate to say they know someone in a county.

I have visited every Georgia county in person, at beauty shops, hardware stores, diners, strip malls, and barber shops. I've been out and seen Georgia during this campaign. No other candidate has done that. In fact, people repeatedly tell us they haven't had a visit in 40 years from a Candidate for Governor.

I've been asked why I work this hard to get elected. The answer is simple. Because every county, every voter, every citizen, in every corner, in every inch of this great state, matters to me. That is why I am running for Governor.

I only know how to campaign one way -- with a handshake or a hug.

I'm not running on an apology.

I don't have to tell Georgians I have learned how to listen. Georgians know I have listened for the last 28 years of my public service and will continue to listen as Georgia's next Governor.

Together we can do great things and make our state prosperous. We don't need to go back. We must move forward.

To move forward, I need your help and support. Please vote for me on Tuesday, July 20, in the Democratic Primary for Governor. Thank you.

Kind Regards,

DuBose Porter

Senate Democratic Leader Robert Brown (D-Macon)
State Representative Nikki Randall (D-Macon)
State Representative David Lucas (D-Macon)
State Representative Bubber Epps (D-Twiggs Co.)
Rick Hutto, Macon City Council

The following statements were issued on why DuBose Porter is the best candidate for Governor:

Senate Democratic Leader Robert Brown said, "DuBose can carry our state forward, black and white, rural and urban, and is the best candidate for Governor of the state of Georgia."

State Representative David Lucas said, "DuBose knows the issues and he knows how to fight for middle Georgia."

Rick Hutto, Macon City Council member, said, "I can't imagine anyone in middle Georgia who would vote for anyone else other than DuBose Porter. I am proud to support DuBose Porter for Governor."

Larry Schlesinger, Macon City Council member, said, "I like his positions on passenger rail. I support his position on education and applaud his concern for economic development. But most importantly, he is a true human being because he talks to you and not at you."

Joe Allen, Bibb County Commissioner, said, "We have not had a Governor south of the gnat-line take up for Macon in a long time. DuBose will do that and I encourage everyone who voted for me to vote for DuBose Porter for Governor."

Lonzy Edwards, Bibb County Commission member, said, "This election is about the future of the state. DuBose is a leader and a visionary. Support him for three reasons, Jobs, jobs and jobs."

Kathryn Epps, Twiggs County Commission member, said, "He walks the walk and talks the talk."

James Vaughn, Monroe County Commissioner, said, "As a county commissioner the challenge has been on how to deal with local government with an adversarial relationship with the state. That will change with DuBose Porter as Governor."

Jim Hamm, Monroe County Commission member, said, "I believe he will work for the entire state of Georgia and would be a great Governor."

John Wilson, Middle Georgia Environmentalist, said, "DuBose Porter has been working on protecting land along the Ocmulgee River for years and no one will be better on the environment than DuBose Porter as Governor."

Dr. Ty Ivey, dentist and conservationist, said, "DuBose is a former board member of the Nature Conservancy which I strongly support. Not only are his credentials on the environment unprecedented but we need his talents to get our state through this tough time."

Jim Crisp, head of the Theatre Macon, said, "DuBose understands the arts and how it impacts economic development. He has sincerity and vision which is why he has my vote."

Editor's Note: State Representative Nikki Randall has come down with the flu and will issue a statement later.

86. New Poll

A new poll is out, and just what the DuBose Porter campaign knew would happen is happening. Our grassroots campaign is showing up in the numbers at the polls. We have seen this race happen in Georgia before. No one thought Sonny Perdue would win until the day after the election, and that is what will happen with DuBose Porter. Vote your conscience. Vote DuBose! Money does not have to decide this race. Your vote counts. Vote!

Among people who have already voted, DuBose Porter and Thurbert Baker are tied for second place. Both candidates have 16%, while Barnes has 41%. This means DuBose will get into the runoff with Barnes and then go on to victory, but he needs your help. Please forward this email to as many of your friends as possible, and help us make the final push to victory.
