BatGurl here! Alive and well. (Be honest, you thought I was gone, didn’t you?)
Given all the commenting going on down below, seems like as good a time as any to actually talk about names that matter.
The Chair of the DPG can do some things to help elect Democrats in Georgia, but it does not matter if the DPG’s next Chair is the most successful state party chair in the history of state party chair’s, candidates are what win elections. (Real elections.)
We all know the Senate seat names, lets skip that. But what’s going on in the 11th CD, the 10th CD and the 1st CD?
All of these districts are trending blue. A candidate willing to run hard in 2014 but also understanding they may have to let a Republican newbie hold the seat for 2 years while continuing to campaign for an eventual win in 2016 would be the ultimate find. (Freshmen Congressmen are the easiest to beat for various reasons.)
Who’s running for Governor? Who’s running for Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Attorney General, Agriculture, so on, etc, etc, etc. We have a crap ton of state-wide offices and unless y’all want some crazies on the ballot, somebody has to step up somewhere.
So while everyone down below is arguing over who’s going to attempt to raise the Titanic from the bottom of the sea, what names do we have in the elections that actually count?
