Oxendine Ahead for GOP Governor Primary

Rasmussen writes that Oxendine is ahead in the GOP Primary Race:

John Oxendine, Georgia’s fire and insurance commissioner, holds a commanding lead over all other Republican gubernatorial hopefuls in an early look at next year’s state GOP Primary.

A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in Georgia shows Oxendine with 35% support among those likely to vote in the state’s open Republican Primary. His next closest competitors are Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel with 11% and Congressman Nathan Deal at 10%. But 33% are not sure which candidate they prefer.

I do not know much about him, but I will be watching him in the future. It is hard to imagine that he is worst the Karen Handel from a liberal perspective, though it is Georgia, we are known for our overly conservative candidates.
