Carter for Governor
Reed was eyeing the Governor's race himself in 2018 but it sounds like he's manning up. Reed has been enthusiastically fundraising U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn (D. GA) and his support for Carter would be very helpful. In the mean time, if you'd like to get involved or donate to Carter's campaign, you can do so here:Georgia Democrats are expecting a rift to heal in the next few weeks between two of the state's top Democrats:Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Sen. Jason Carter (D-Decatur), who is running for Governor.
The chilly relationship between Atlanta's mayor and his party's candidate for Governor became a story when Mayor Reed said in January that he wouldn't jump on Carter's "bandwagon."
Although Reed said he expected to support the Democratic nominee, "I ran for mayor twice, and Jason didn't support me."
Democratic sources say the two men have communicated in recent days to arrange what Democrats hope will be a ringing endorsement by the mayor of Carter's candidacy. Recent polls have shown Carter presenting a strong challenge to the incumbent Republican, Governor Nathan Deal.
Democrats say Reed can only help."He is a very popular mayor who is reaching out, making a difference, and having him on your side in an election is highly desirable," said Sen. Nan Orrock (D-Atlanta), who has served in the state senate with Reed and Carter. - NBC 11 Atlanta, 3/13/14
