Isakson launches bid for second term

  • Follow Latest News

ATLANTA - U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson got an early jump on the 2010 election, announcing his bid for a second term.

Tuesday's state Capitol news conference was the first stop in a statewide tour for Isakson, an Atlanta real estate developer.

No Democratic challenger has emerged yet to challenge Isakson.

Instead, all eyes have been on the open governor's seat that will be up that same year.

Isakson recently voted against the federal stimulus package President Barack Obama is set to sign into law.

But he acknowledged on Tuesday that it will mean "significant money coming to Georgia" for programs such as cash-strapped programs like Medicaid and transportation.

Perhaps Hillary Clinton and

Perhaps Hillary Clinton and Eric Holder and the recipients of the bailout...oh yeah, and the illegals, can come vote for Johnny. If a true conservative runs against him, he will be defeated.
