Today’s edition of the Rome News Tribune endorsed State Representative Barbara Massey Reece saying that the incumbent state representative "has persistently earned voter suport and perhaps works hardest at keeping in constant touch with constituents.  She’s been a ‘keeper’ for a decade and remains one."

The paper also endorsed Democrat Rick Crawford and Republican Katie Dempsey and gave a timid endorsement to Republican Barry Loudermilk.

Quote from Rome News Tribune Editorial Page:

WHILE FACING a challenge more loud than logical, the 10-year incumbent, Barbara Massey Reece, a Democrat, has persistently earned voter support and perhaps works hardest as keeping in constant touch with constituents. She’s been a “keeper” for a decade and remains one.
