A Georgia Tea Party activist has endorsed the Democratic candidate for Public Service Commissioner District 3.

Debbie Dooley, who co-founded the Georgia Tea Party, says she trusts Lindy Miller to be a consumer advocate for Georgians.  Miller is running against incumbent Republican Chuck Eaton.

Eaton has been criticized for his efforts of receiving large campaign contributions from energy lobbyist and large energy corporations such as Georgia Power for which he regulates.

Eaton has been endorsed by both the Georgia Chamber of Commerce and the state’s major unions, which send thousands of workers to Plant Vogtle. Eaton supported the Plant Vogtle expansion despite the delays and billions in cost overruns.

The Democrat, Lindy Miller has said she wants to be a better state watchdog over the project if elected as the commission’s only Democrat.

This watchdog mentality fits into the Tea Party’s persona of rooting out waste, fraud, and abuse.

Just this week, the nuclear power industry was reported to have contributed more that $1 million dollars into the runoff race on Eaton’s behalf.

The runoff election is Dec. 4 and early voting has already started for the runoff elections.

  1. Seriously? How could anyone with integrity vote democrat for anything after all the evil we have seen out of the democrat party this year? How could anyone with any integrity run as a democrat? If this democrat candidate is a decent person, why didn’t she run as an independent or Libertarian? Democrat = Communist.

    • Nelda, if you can’t see the truth here, we’re not going to forcefeed you. Just ask yourself, why would an organization throw $1 million on a run-off? Because they expect o be rewarded 10, 100 fold. If you can’t vote for a democrat, then simply skip it. But I assure you Chuck Eaton isn’t representing you, he’s representing special interests.
