I endorse Oxendine.
Last week I reviewed some of the candidates on the 2010 ballot in Georgia. In that post, I said I liked both Oxendine and Handel for governor.
Handel and Oxendine have essentially the same platform and beliefs. I actually like Oxendine's platform slightly better because of his desire to eliminate the income tax in Georgia and his commitment to the Fair Tax.
In my eyes, Palin endorsed Handel solely because she's a woman. (Pet peeve here: Handel's signs are green. Come on lady, really!? When do you ever see the guy with the green sign win?)
I believe Oxendine is the only candidate who will beat Democrat Roy Barnes in the general election. A Mason-Dixon poll that ran in yesterday's paper matched up candidates in the general election:
Ox vs. Barnes 42-42
Handel vs. Barnes 34-45
Deal vs. Barnes 28-46
We've seen Barnes before. We don't need to do that again. Sorry Sarah, but I wish you had looked into the race more before endorsing a candidate because she wears a skirt.
