His name is RJ Hadley. He hails from Rockdale County & is a Chief of Staff according to his Bio. He was a Obama Delegate (at-large) for the state of Georgia. He has been traveling the state already meeting & greeting folks, attended the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. He announced his intentions on June 7 of this year. He has already met DuBose Porter, Sanford Bishop, Rob Teilhet & others. He doesn't have a website, but he has a facebook page & Twitter page. Here's an email I got from him yesterday: I'm planning to run for U.S. Senate next year and I want to make sure that rural GA is listened to. In fact, I'm spending most of my time listening to voters in the south and up north in the mountains. I guess that goes against the conventional, but so be it. Anyway, I appreciate your blog and please keep me informed about the important issues facing ALL rural voters in GA. I welcome input from you and your readers.
Every election cycle, we cheer those candidates who raise the most money as "viable". Most of them get voted into office and then we can't believe the choices they make. Well the ones who raise the most money probably had to rely on corporate or special interests to get there. So why would we expect those politicians to care about the rest of us once they get in?
