It's Majette In The 4th

Atlanta Public Affairs has posted that the big name set to run against McKinney in the 4th is none other than former 4th Representative Denise Majette.

Ms. Majette beat McKinney in 2002 by a handy margin. To be frank, the victory was more about her being the anti-McKinney than anything else. Then to the utter shock of practically every democrat in Georgia, Majette abandoned the 4th for a quixotic campaign for U.S. Senate in 2004.

After a sound thrashing by Johnny Isakson, Majette has wandered the political wilderness for the past two years, hinting at running for about a half dozen different state offices.

Will the 4th voters forgive her for the abandonment of 04? Will the new Rockdale portion of the district be the difference? Will McKinney play the strategy of pointing out Majette's wishy washy ways?

I am both horrified and fascinated.

UPDATE: Just want to remind everyone that I am still willing to throw my hat in the ring.
