To the Victor Goes the Spoils -- Obama becomes issue in U.S. Senate campaign between Jones and Martin

Jim Tharpe writes in the AJC:

U.S. Senate candidate Vernon Jones has blasted his Democratic opponent for failing to vote for Barack Obama in the February primary.

Jones, CEO of DeKalb County, raised the issue for the first time Monday, then again Wednesday. Jim Martin initially skirted the subject when asked about it directly at a Wednesday news conference.

"That is the one thing that is kind of private," Martin said at his news conference, called to announce two Fulton County officials were backing his candidacy. "A lot of things are private. It is public that I made a contribution to John Edwards."
