A school superintendent kicks off his gubernatorial campaign by misspelling the title he hopes to hold.

Shortly after John Barge launched his campaign to run for governor of Georgia via a new website, it was discovered that his team had misspelled a pretty crucial word on the homepage: Governor. The Atlantic Journal-Constitution reported that the message on the site read, "Georgia's next govenor." The error was quickly fixed, but the embarrassment was not so easily removed.
