Cooke, Winters Battle for Macon Judicial Circuit DA Slot | Politics
With only a week left before the next District Attorney for the Macon-Bibb Judicial Circuit is voted in, the candidates Greg Winters and David Cooke are each trying to convince voters that he has the right record to effectively prosecute crimes in the area.
The candidates visited 13WMAZ studios for a debate Monday evening and a follow-up discussion.
For the most part, Cooke is on offense, saying Winters mishandled the Lauren Giddings murder case, and has a soft record on crimes against women.
Winters contends Cooke has his facts wrong. He argues the proof that he's an effective district attorney is in the endorsements from the Bibb, Crawford, and Peach Sheriff's offices.
