If anyone thought there might be some lingering bitterness from the two Stacies primary that thought was put to rest this morning as Governor Roy Barnes endorsed Stacey Abrams. Barnes was an early and enthusiastic backer of the other Stacey–Ms. Evans.
From an Abrams campaign press release, Barnes’ quote:
“I understand first hand how vital it is to elect strong leaders who will harness the full potential of Georgia. Too many have made this election about a choice between working with Republicans to maintain our AAA bond rating or fighting for access to education, health care, and jobs. Stacey Abrams has already proven she can work across the aisle to do both, and has the experience and vision to strengthen Georgia. I am proud to support her campaign.”
