Kasim Reed is racking them up.
On the heels of yesterday's endorsement from former challenger Lisa Borders, the mayoral hopeful is getting the stamp of approval from former Gov. Roy Barnes, the AJC's Jim Galloway reported last night. A press conference is scheduled for 2 p.m.
Does this endorsement matter? Of course. Barnes has cachet among African-American voters for his 2001 decision to remove the Confederate battle emblem from its prominent spot on the state flag. But it clearly creates a mutual obligation that would benefit Barnes next July, come the Democratic primary for governor.
Barnes has announced he's making a 2010 bid to return to the Governor's Mansion.
Earlier this week, Reed picked up an endorsement from former state legislator Jim Martin whose own endorsement from Barnes failed to give him the edge in the 2006 race for Lieutenant Governor.
