Dem. candidate for U.S. Senate picks an usual "first" campaign issue -- immigration. Is he running for the primary or the general election, or both?

This weekend the AJC's Political Insider informed us that there is a new Democratic candidate in the 2008 race for U.S. Senate, Dale Cardwell, who on Friday ended an 11-year stint as an investigative reporter at WSB-TV.

The first issue he mentioned to the Political Insider was the immigration reform bill now before the U.S. Senate, and hammered out with the assistance of both Senators Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson.

According to the Political Insider, Cardwell called it an "amnesty" bill that’s aimed at satisfying corporate interests. "Georgia has to be freed from this illegal invasion that’s holding down salaries,” he told the Political Insider.

He sounds like he's the real deal & he sounds like he is a conservative Democrat. I want to hear his platform to see is he a progressive, or a populist. My choices to run for the senate are Michael Thurmond (D) or Robert Brown (D) State Senator from macon.
