This is one of the oddest front page diaries I have ever seen here. Attacking a potential candidate for getting in late? Saying we should support whoever has been in for the longest? Very odd indeed.
2010 will be a very red election and GA is still yes a Red state, so as you can imagine people have not been jumping all over themselves to jump in. And considering how much money Isakson will likely have to attack whoever gets in, I would say it makes sense to wait a little while even if he had his mind made up.
That being said, I have no problem with Mr. Hadley staying in and making it competitive. May the best man win.
