  • Schaefer says she may jump into (GA) 10th District race

    03/01/2008 7:31:58 PM PST · by Clintonfatigued · 8 replies · 580+ views
    U.S. Rep. Paul Broun may be picking up another opponent in the Republican primary this July. State Sen. Nancy Schaefer (R-Turnerville) just told us that she’ll decide “in the next few days” whether to enter the race. This is important because it would force a three-way geographic split in the 10th District congressional contest. Broun hails from Athens. House Majority Whip Barry Fleming, who announced last summer, draws his support from Augusta. Schaefer currently represents northeast Georgia, which provided Broun with much of his surprise margin of victory in last year’s special election to replace the late Charlie Norwood. Schaefer...
  • Eric Johnson is Fred Thompson's rainy-day friend

    The Savannah Morning News ^ | December 9, 2007
    State Sen. Eric Johnson was among the first prominent Georgians to jump on the Fred Thompson for President bandwagon. The Savannah Republican helped persuade dozens of state lawmakers to endorse the former Tennessee senator earlier this year. But he remained relatively quiet after Thompson officially entered the GOP race this summer. Until last week, that is. That was when Thompson slipped to fifth place in one national poll after doing only a little better in other recent ones. Earlier, he'd led in one national poll and stayed near the front of the pack in others. Against that backdrop, Johnson weighed...
  • [GA Senate Pro-Tem]Eric Johnson on the Republican field (Fred's the "Reagan Conservative")

    I just got this via e-mail from Senate Pro-Tem Eric Johnson: Dear Friends; You know where Rudy stands on the issues even if you disagree. You can’t tell where Mitt stands. Most of the rest of the field are not key players. Only Mike Huckabee has made some moves – primarily because he is good on his feet in the debates. But there is only one true “Reagan conservative” – Fred Thompson. The others are NOT conservatives or say they are now, but their record says otherwise. Please join me in supporting the consistent conservative who can win. Giuliani is...

    RINGGOLD, Ga. -- With endorsements from almost half of Georgia's Republican legislators, presidential candidate Fred Thompson has "phenomenal support" statewide, according to state Sen. Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, named two weeks ago to head Mr. Thompson's campaign in Georgia. "We're working nonstop to build on the lead we already have here in Georgia," Sen. Rogers said Monday. "This should be a state that should go for Fred Thompson." Sen. Rogers met here with about 10 other North Georgia supporters of Mr. Thompson at Portofino Pizza and Italian Restaurant for a strategy session. Also there were state Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger, and...
  • Steve Croy to be Thompson's Georgia finance chairman

    Richmond Hill businessman Steve Croy will be the Georgia finance chairman for Republican presidential candidate Fred Thompson. The campaign of the former U.S. senator from Tennessee is due to announce Croy's appointment today. He also will serve on Thompson's national finance committee. Croy, an early supporter of Thompson, said the former senator filled a void in the GOP field with a "true conservative voice." Croy co-chaired a July 6 dinner in Atlanta that raised an estimated $400,000 for Thompson's exploratory committee. He also served as treasurer and finance chair last year for Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle's successful campaign. "I'm excited...

    Congressional Quarterly ^ | Jul. 06, 2007 | Rachel Kapochunas
    Sometimes your own party’s support isn’t enough — a fact of political life being borne out again in the competitive Republican-versus-Republican special election campaign for the vacant House seat in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District. Former state Sen. Jim Whitehead is the consensus front-runner to succeed the late seven-term Republican Rep. Charlie Norwood, as early voting begins next week in a runoff campaign that ends July 17. Whitehead’s 43.5 percent of the vote in the 10-candidate, single-ballot June 19 special election primary placed him way ahead of physician Paul Broun — the Republican whose 20.7 percent enabled him to narrowly edge...
  • The GOP in nine counties line up behind Whitehead (GA speecial election)

    06/24/2007 7:52:27 PM PDT · by Clintonfatigued · 4 replies · 1,106+ views
    Establishment Republicans began lining up behind Jim Whitehead of Columbia County in the 10th District congressional run-off on Friday. GOP organizations in nine of the 21 counties within the district endorsed Whitehead over Paul Broun of Athens, who came in second in the June 19 vote. They were Richmond, Columbia, Lincoln, McDuffie, Putnam, Elbert, Stephens, Madison, and Towns. This is more important than it sounds. With some exceptions, the nine counties generally run up the eastern-most side of the district, from Augusta north. On Tuesday, they produced 53 percent of the 54,229 votes counted to date. More significantly, the nine...

    Now that the crowd of candidates seeking Georgia's 10th congressional district has been cut down by eight, the two men who appear headed for a runoff are preparing for an all-GOP contest. Front-runner Jim Whitehead's campaign said the emergence of fellow Republican Paul Broun as his opponent in the July 17 runoff won't throw a snag in the plans. Spokesman John Stone said the campaign will focus on maintaining the support that earned Whitehead more than 40 percent of the vote in Tuesday's special election. "We know that regardless who we're running against, our campaign is going to be the...

    A retired commander at Robins Air Force Base said Monday he will seek the GOP nomination to oppose Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Marshall for the 8th Congressional District. Retired Maj. Gen. Richard Goddard said people have asked him to run before, but seeing the Democratic-controlled Congress in action this year inspired him to take the leap. "The landscape has changed," Goddard said. "When I see the leadership in charge of Congress, the vision the liberal left has for the country is not the vision I have had for many years and it is not the vision that most men have...
  • Jockeying begins for Norwood’s seat (U.S. House special election)

    The jockeying has already started to succeed U.S. Rep. Charles Norwood, who died Tuesday after a battle with cancer. At least one Republican state lawmaker has thrown his hat in the race, and political experts say there's a good chance the northeast Georgia district will likely remain in GOP hands. ''This is a very Republican district,'' said Charles Bullock, a political science professor at the University of Georgia in Athens, which is in the congressional district. ''Realistically, I don't see a Democrat having too much of a chance.'' Whatever way the race goes it won't have any impact on control...
  • Two Georgia Congressional Districts showing potential for GOP pickups

    Two of the GOP’s best chances for pickups in the House of Representatives this year are in Georgia, where two former Congressmen are embattled in races which are poised to go down to the wire. In Georgia’s 12th Congressional District, where Max Burns is challenging incumbent Democrat Representative John Barrow, the most recent poll showed the candidates in a statistical dead heat with a week to go in the campaign. This latest poll, conducted by Insider Advantage, shows Barrow with a three-point edge over Burns at 42% to 39%, a lead well within the 6-point margin of error. The telephone...
  • Casey Cagle takes slight lead, polls show (GA Lt. Gov. primary)

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | July 13, 2006 | Jim Galloway
    Two local pollsters on Wednesday said a withering series of TV ads has given Casey Cagle a slight lead for the first time over Ralph Reed in the Republican race for lieutenant governor. In a combination of television spots, direct mail and automated phone calls, Cagle has accused the ex-Christian Coalition leader of defending "sweatshops" in the Northern Marianas Islands that coerced children into prostitution and forced women to have abortions. "Preposterous. This is beyond the pale," complained Jared Thomas, manager of the Reed campaign. A tracking poll of 400 likely GOP voters published Wednesday by Insider Advantage, an independent...

    President Bush did not actually invite the Taliban to visit Texas. He merely voiced his approval, in reference to the invitation, his buddies in Unocal set forth to the Taliban. No other clarifications are necessary, for the truth cannot be improved upon. I’ve listened closely to all the responses, and in doing so, I‘ve become confused about what a “Conservative”, actually is. It has always been my impression that conservatives believe in hard work, character, integrity, and above all, self-reliance. Many times I’ve heard tales of conservatives that started from nothing, and using sheer determination and will, maybe some inherent...

I writing to inform you of the actual events and ask you for your help. On October 25th 2005 I published one of my bi-weekly columns on the subject of Democratic Congressman Jim Marshall’s voting record.

    A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing By William John Hagan Houston Home Journal 10/29/2005 I am perpetually astounded by the Southern Democrats that we send to Washington who paint themselves as conservatives while stabbing their hapless constituents in the back upon arrival. These wolves in sheep’s clothing are more then happy to support their constituents on visible issues such as the War on Terror and abortion. Yet, when voters aren’t looking, they are out there casting ballots like drunken Yankee liberals at a DNC rally. Houston County hasn’t had to worry much about this type of louse thanks to the exceptional...

    2004 US Senate Elections These are the states I am watching: Florida: I believe that Martinez will help Bush here. I think Cubans that are having doubts about Bush will support him when they vote for Martinez. I think most Hispanics would like to have Martinez representing them and that will push him past Castor. Castor comes off very old and too loyal to the “party.” And she is in real trouble when she has to explain about how she handled the “terrorist professor” when she was the president of USF. She has been around in politics for over ten...
