If you believe that a vigorous discussion of the issues is important to our political system, then you have to give a big thanks to Dalton Mayor David Pennington.
After thinking it over for quite a while, Pennington announced last week that he will get into the governor’s race and run against Gov. Nathan Deal in the Republican primary.
Pennington’s decision is good for the political process and, in the long run, will be good for the average Georgian.
No incumbent officeholder should be given a free ride to re-election without having to defend his record.
