Ex-president's role limited in grandson's campaign

PLAINS, Ga. (AP) - Inside a small Baptist church packed with out-of-state visitors wanting to hear from former President Jimmy Carter, one the most eager listeners may have been his grandson, Jason.

The message of this Sunday school lesson was the importance of prayer when one happens to be negotiating Middle East peace and balancing the daily threat of the Cold War.

As Jason Carter heads into a fierce campaign for governor this year, it was a relevant message from someone he has long admired.

So far in his campaign, there's been little mention so far of his grandfather. One area where the elder Carter has been visible is with fundraising, and this weekend the two hosted a small group of donors in Plains.

Jason Carter says his grandfather's counsel is important to him.
