Atlanta, Georgia (AP) --

Former President Jimmy Carter will help Democrats
in the Georgia Legislature line their campaign warchest with just
three weeks to go until the general election.

Carter will headline a fundraiser Tuesday night (Oct. 12) for the House
and Senate Democratic caucuses in Atlanta.

Democrats have seen their numbers shrink at the statehouse in
recent years after decades of rule. Republicans now control the
House and Senate as well as the governor's mansion.

Carter's grandson, Jason Carter, is a new member of the
Democratic ranks at the Capitol. Carter won a special election
earlier this year for a state Senate seat representing portions of
Atlanta and Decatur. The Democrat faces no opposition in the Nov. 2
general election. He's the first Carter to win office since Carter
left the White House in 1981.

    Anyone who can read, think critically and has the ability to comprehend facts, or wants to will be able to see that Presidnet Carter not only was a great President and a great former President. Given the current state of government spending, it is well noted that (1)President Carter kept the Federal deficit the same for four years after taking office (no increase). (2) Had more legislative priorities passed than any president since. (3) Warned all Americans at the time of the pending energy crisis that we now have. To assert anything other than the facts just shows ignorance and intolerance! Carter has thick skin, he has been battling the Ole' boys since his first venture into politics many years ago. I would suggest putting President Carter's accomplishments in comparison to any other president in the 20th and 21st century. Let the facts fall where they may!
