Albany Herald: "We Believe The Best Choice Is Handel"

With six days left until the August 10th Republican gubernatorial primary run-off election, former Secretary of State Karen Handel picked up an endorsement from a prominent southwest Georgia newspaper.

In the primary, The Albany Herald endorsed the candidate who finished a close third in the race — former state Sen. Eric Johnson — who did not qualify for the runoff election. So now the question is, of the two GOP candidates who survived, which would be the best choice for Georgia?

We believe the best choice is Handel.

Both Republican candidates would likely do well as the state’s chief executive, but on balance, Handel’s positions are better for the state and our region. She also is in the best position to run against the former governor in November. For those reasons, we think Handel should be the GOP nominee.
