John Conyers, Donna Brazille To Hold Rallies For Jim Martin

As Georgia's December 2nd run-off election approaches, the Martin for Senate campaign continues to ramp up its efforts to unseat Republican Saxby Chambliss.

Tuesday morning, Jim Martin's campaign announced that Michigan Congressman John Conyers and prominent Democratic strategist Donna Brazille would make campaign stops in Atlanta and Savannah to rally the troops in advance of the December election.

John Conyers, who is a founding member of the Congressional Black Caucus, will appear in Savannah at the local Martin for Senate campaign office. Democratic strategist Donna Brazille will hold two rallies in Atlanta on the college campuses of Morris Brown & Spelman.

Brazille made history in 2000 as the first African-American female to run a major presidential campaign when she served as former Vice President Al Gore's campaign manager.

[UPDATE]: The Martin for Senate campaign just announced that Mississippi Congressman Bennie Thompson will join Donna Brazille at an Atlanta campaign rally before heading to Columbus, Georgia for a pep talk to volunteers at the local Martin campaign office.
