Former governor faced heat over Genarlow Wilson case

The Democratic nomination for Georgia governor is Roy Barnes' to lose.
With about five weeks left until the state's July 20 primary, the former governor is the prohibitive favorite for his party's nod. So, can anyone else in the seven-man race catch him?
The most likely spoiler is Attorney General Thurbert Baker. Baker has been the state's top lawyer for 13 years and won recent praise among party loyalists for refusing Gov. Sonny Perdue's order to sue the Obama administration over a new federal health care law. Baker is also the state's most prominent black politician heading into a primary where about half the electorate is expected to be African American.
