GA Newspaper Editor: Michelle Nunn’s Insult To Georgia’s Voters

Yesterday, Chuck Williams, senior editor to Columbus’s Ledger-Enquirer, wrote a scathing column on Michelle Nunn’s snub of Columbus’s Democrat primary debate.

Williams noted that Nunn “lost my respect” because she “ducks the debate where she and her handlers can’t control the questions or environment.”

And to add insult to injury, Nunn has indicated she will show up for a Georgia Public Television debate, Miles said last week. That means when the statewide glare is on the candidates, she will be there.

She didn’t see fit to come to Columbus for a regionally televised debate. But in a strange move, she was here a week before the debate at the Whitewater Express office right next door to the Columbus State University theater where the debate took place.

Her people were trying to get coverage for that and other Columbus events. But then she ducks the debate where she and her handlers can’t control the questions or environment.

That is insulting.

So far, Nunn has missed all half-dozen Democrat primary debates, despite Harry Reid saying she’s “running extremely well.” Avoiding answering voters’ questions might work for Harry Reid, but Georgia’s voters deserve accountability.
