ICYMI: Barksdale “has run one of the strangest campaigns I’ve ever seen”

September 2, 2016

Recently, McClatchy DC profiled the U.S. Senate race in Georgia that pits beloved Republican senator Johnny Isakson against millionaire moneyman Jim Barksdale.

In case you missed it, here are the top 6 takeaways about Jim Barksdale’s candidacy, as described by Georgia Democrats, academics, and pundits:

1.) Barksdale ”has run one of the strangest campaigns I’ve ever seen.”

2.) ”Limited advertising. He doesn’t seem to be out on the stump much. He seems a little bit invisible.”

3.) ”I think a lot of people would be more comfortable if there was more activity on Barksdale’s part.”

4.) Barksdale: ”I’m relatively unknown in Georgia…”

5.) ”The Democrats might be thinking at this point that they should have nominated someone who had elective office-holding experience and was a seasoned politico…”

6.) ”I have a very hard time coming up with a path to victory for him.”
