One of the more important political events in south Georgia last week was the 22nd annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Cookout down in Glennville, south of I-16 - not far from the coast.
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle was to be the featured speaker. His decision to cancel his appearance at the Thursday barbecue was one of the first hints that he would withdraw from the race for governor.
But look who did show up. These photos were posted on DeWayne and Lori Grice’s blog down in Statesboro:
DeWayne Grice, a Democrat, said Roy and Marie Barnes also showed up at the dedication of the new courthouse in nearby Reidsville earlier that day. Where Cagle was also to appear, but did not.
