Libertarians for Powell

Jim Powell gets endorsed by the Libertarian who threw his Public Service Commission race into a runoff, which I think is pretty good news. Granted those folks who backed the Libertarian need to get back to the polls and vote for Powell, so there's that.

On paper, this race is an absolute no-brainer. Powell's vastly more qualified to serve than Lauren McDonald, has earned the endorsement of the outgoing Republican commissioner and now has picked up the support of the Libertarian candidate who opposed him the general election. Still, in a red state like Georgia, my concern is how many folks will actually take the time to process this down ballot race and how many of them will just resort to vote for the letter next to the name.
