    Baker is old news IMO, Unfortunately I think there's still enough white people with old thinking in Georgia who won't vote for an African-American for a significant office like U.S. Senator. Plus how many Black folks voted for him against Roy Barnes in that primary?

    Any competent Dem will boost AA turnout. Not just Baker cus he's black.

      of course he was going to win that primary. And I'm still of the position that we can't win the seat at all, but Baker gets us closest I think.

      •  Is he even around (0+ / 0-)

        cause after he lost to Barnes, it seems like he disappeared into private life.
