ATLANTA (Reuters) - While a Bush and a Clinton consider whether to run for the White House in 2016, in Georgia another U.S. presidential surname from decades past is already on a ballot.
Blessed with his forebear's famous smile and mellow manner, state Senator Jason Carter is trying to emulate grandfather Jimmy in November by winning election as governor.
Unlike the former president, who has moved further to the left with age, Jason, 38, is carving out room on the right as he campaigns as a Democrat against an incumbent in a conservative state. Polls show a tight race.
In March he voted for legislation known to its detractors as the guns everywhere law, which the National Rifle Association boasts is the most comprehensive of its type ever passed by a state. The law, which takes effect in July, makes it easier for Georgians to carry guns in bars, churches and airports.

This Demunist supports Second Amendment rights (for now, to get elected), so he must be alright, right?
Jimmy Carter had a son? Thought he just had a daughter. Hmmm?
I love the prog take on GA politics. Like Jason Carter has a ghost of a chance to win. They never give up.
Carter had two older sons that were never in the picture IIRC....not the photo op that Amy was...
The Carter’s have 4 children, but only Amy (the youngest) lived in the WH.
Now, if memory serves me, the surviving Carters are the very last white Democrats in the state of Georgia, correct?
Nor were they the experts on nuclear proliferation that Amy was/is.
“Unlike the former president, who has moved further to the left with age, Jason, 38, is carving out room on the right”
Like all “red-state” Democrats, campaign right (i.e. lie), then govern left. Don’t be fooled.
