Press release by the Porter Campaign on Friday.



June 11, 2009 DuBose Porter is Deeds in the Georgia Democratic Primary for Governor in 2010 Money and Name recognition don’t always win elections Atlanta – The recent victory of R. Creigh Deeds in the Virginia Democratic Primary for Governor shows that House Democratic Leader DuBose Porter (D-Dublin), candidate for Governor in 2010, can win the Georgia Democratic Primary. Deeds, who is also a rural state lawmaker, was able to win the primary over two well funded and better known candidates, one of which was backed by the Democratic Governor’s Association. The same case can be made here in the Georgia Democratic Primary for Governor with DuBose Porter, who like Deeds, has grass roots popularity. Porter won in his rural district by 76 percent because he does something different than most politicians, he listens and represents his people and not the powers that be. “R. Creigh Deeds won because he had the experience and shared the values of Virginia’s voters and I will win because I too have the experience and share the values of Georgia’s voters. As history shows in Georgia, you can have $20 million and still lose to someone who only has $4 million if you are not connected to the people. I am connected to the people,” said Porter.
