Here’s a nice new piece of ridiculousness for you to add to the pile:
Former DeKalb County Chief Executive Officer Vernon Jones (D) is set to kick off his primary challenge to sophomore Rep. Hank Johnson (D) in Georgia’s 4th district.
According to a release from Jones camp, the official campaign announcement will take place at 2 p.m. Friday afternoon in Decatur, Ga.
Jones, as you may recall, is a two-time Bush voter with some bad baggage who was most recently seen losing the 2008 Democratic Senatorial primary to Jim Martin. Jones may not be the only candidate in the race; DeKalb County Commissioners Lee May and Connie Stokes have also made noises about running, but it remains to be seen whether they’ll defer to Jones, their former colleague.
