Barrow Picks Up A Number of Endorsements in GA Supreme Court Race

The position is nonpartisan and Barrow’s first endorsement list includes a number of endorsements from district attorneys, sheriffs, and other elected officials from at least two political parties.

In his quest to become one of Georgia’s next Supreme Court justices, attorney and former Congressman John Barrow has picked up a number of endorsements.
His campaign made the announcement last week, saying the bipartisan list of more than 170 members of the state bar, district attorney’s offices, county sheriff’s and other elected officials, is among the ‘first round’ of endorsements. The campaign says it will release endorsements on a regional basis. The list below is from the Metro Atlanta area.
“I’m grateful for the support of these leaders all across the state,” Barrow said in a press release. “What they tell me is that I bring the kind of balance we need on our Supreme Court. My experience makes me uniquely qualified to understand the issues that matter to real people in the real world.”
Barrow is a candidate for the seat on the Georgia Supreme Court currently held by retiring Justice Robert Benham. The nonpartisan election will take place at the same time as next year’s general primary election, on May 19. He will face Sara Doyle, an Appeals Court Judge.
