sorry, but this is really shoddy journalism

This tells us nothing about the candidates. We don't care if they're married or if they have children, we don't care where they went to high school, we need to know what their priorities and governing philosophies are.

This "article" is worse than running nothing at all.

Davis's education: 'bachelor's degree?' what's the question mark for?

Enoch: where is his political experience? Managed Hardie Davis's GA Senate campaign for one, served as counsel for Augusta Convention Commission, etc.

O'Steen: I'm sure there's mistakes here too but he doesn't show up to the debates so I don't know much about him

AC: please take this article down and write something or pull it altogether. This really is embarrassing.
