When I look at the race for governor in the closing weeks of the campaign, the things that I don't see include energy, enthusiasm or bold new ideas for revitalizing our great state of Georgia.
We've been concentrating so closely on the governor's race that it's easy to forget several amendments to the state constitution will also be decided by the voters on Nov. 2.
During a telephone call with reporters last week, Nathan Deal explained why he and his wife had made bad investment decisions that were threatening them with financial insolvency.
Imagine what would happen if one of the candidates for governor, either Nathan Deal or Roy Barnes, proposed raising state taxes by $1 billion.
Do Georgia voters really pay any attention to ethics issues?
One of the criticisms you'll often hear of Georgia is the low percentage of students who stay the course in high school and graduate with a diploma.
As they moved through the first week of their general election campaign for governor, Nathan Deal and Roy Barnes focused their attention on this burning issue: the proposed construction of a mosque two blocks from the site of the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City.
When voters in the Republican runoff election were given the opportunity to choose the Sarah Palin-endorsed candidate Karen Handel for governor, they responded: "Thanks, but no thanks."
Is there any hope for Georgia's HOPE scholarship program?
When Sarah Palin endorsed Karen Handel prior to the Republican primary, Handel embraced that support and has been attached at the hip to Palin, figuratively speaking, ever since.
When they fall, they fall fast.
One year ago, a federal judge from Minnesota named Paul Magnuson signed his name to a 97-page court order that was part of the ongoing water wars involving Georgia, Alabama and Florida.
The race for governor has been a very stable one so far, at least if you believe in the validity of the polls.
It's been a very difficult year for politicians trying to raise money for their campaigns, but state Rep. Sean Jerguson, R-Holly Springs, seems to have come up with an idea that's right on target.
In normal times, Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson would not have anything to do with drafting the state budget.
Rep. David Stover is a brave man. He may well be one of the gutsiest people serving in the General Assembly.
When I first started writing about politics, my conservative friends would preach the gospel of "local control." They believed local governments did a better job of running things because local officeholders were closer to the people who elected them.
