'Jimmy Carter for cancer survivor': Ex-president in new fight
When former U.S. president Jimmy Carter returned home to Plains, Ga., after treatment for cancer that's spread to his brain, he was met with lawns overflowing with signs of support. Not political campaign signs, but signs that read "Jimmy Carter for cancer survivor."
The cherished son of the tiny town of Plains was reportedly thrilled – he knows his neighbours adore him, CBC's Adrienne Arsenault reports. But the former president is getting support from more than just his neighbours. Almost every week now, hundreds of people drive through the night to get in line for tickets to see him teach Sunday school at the local Baptist church. What happens next is not always what they expect.
