State Court Judge Dax Lopez was targeted by a mailer from attorney Roderick Bridges’ campaign that listed being “Christian” as a qualification for the job, with a thumbs-up sign under Bridges name – and thumbs-down sign for Lopez. (He also listed Jesus Christ as his top supporter, though later deleted it.)
Lopez declared victory early this morning on Facebook, writing:
Mr. Bridges, your fifteen minutes are up. The voters in DeKalb County have overwhelmingly rejected your divisive tactics. Let this be a lesson to anyone who seeks elected office in DeKalb. The voters of DeKalb will no longer tolerate the politics of division.
