Joe Allen to Endorse Reichert; Bishop Won't | News
Mayor Robert Reichert's plan to reach out to other mayoral candidates for endorsements initially got a mixed reaction Wednesday morning.
Joe Allen told 13WMAZ's Randall Savage he would endorse Reichert in the Oct. 15 runoff against C. Jack Ellis and support him in any way possible. He said he talked to Reichert early Wednesday.
But Charlie Bishop, a Republican says both Ellis and Reichert are liberals and he won't back either one. He won't get involved in the runoff race.
He said he hadn't talked to the mayor.
Bibb County Commission Chairman Sam Hart could not be reached for comment.
David Cousino said he hadn't talked to Reichert yet and wasn't ready to choose sides.
