Senator Mike Crane, a candidate for Congress, ran for the hills rather than participate in the state Senate budget vote. His avoidance is particularly strange given he is a subcommittee chairman on the budget-writing committee. Those in Governor Deal’s orbit quickly pounced on him.
Governor Deal’s Chief of Staff Chris Riley said that Senator Crane, “walks on budget vote after sitting on Senate floor during debate. Really?”
Brian is on point. Here’s the cold, hard truth: Any candidate who tells you “I will not play the political game” is LYING TO YOU. Senator Mike Crane is no exception. He is literally playing the political game. He ran rather than vote on the budget. That, my friends, is politics as usual.
