Well darn, that will greatly reduce the number of replies to this thread.
The son is a Republican. His father was the first Republican elected as governor since Reconstruction days. From what I remember of him, he was a good governor and a decent man.
Is this guy related to former senate leader Sam Nunn D-GA??
Nothing to indicate that he is. Sam Nunn was from Georgia.
