John Barge has been full of surprises. One is likely coming tomorrow in his press conference with Valarie Wilson.


Republican State School Superintendent John Barge has been full of surprises, from bucking his own party on the charter school amendment in 2012 to running against Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal in the GOP primary this year.

Seems like we are going to get another surprise tomorrow.

This release from Democratic school chief  candidate Valarie Wilson clearly suggests a Wilson-Barge rapport, better known in political circles as an endorsement.

Stay tuned.
