Powell's on the ballot

It's gone down to almost the final day, but Jim Powell won (again) in his bid to stay on the ballot in the race for the Public Service Commission. Powell earned the right as the Georgia Supreme Court ruled in his favor today, pushing back the argument put forward by Karen Handel.

I had the chance to briefly chat with George Birchby, Powell's campaign manager, and he said they're pleased with the court's ruling and are eager to continue the campaign.

'It's just another victory for Jim Powell and another defeat for Karen Handel,' he said, referring to Handel's arguments being rebutted by an earlier appeals court.
