“It is a pleasure for me to introduce to you my friend Major Craig Owens. Craig was the precinct commander down in Mableton for many years and I got to know him there, and know what a fine police officer he is and I know what a fine sheriff he will be. I ask you to carefully consider the qualifications of all of the candidates in the Democratic Primary and when you do so, you'll find that Craig Owens is by far the most qualified. I'm for him and I hope that you'll  be for him too.”

— Former Georgia Governor Roy Barnes
