Spalding Democratic Party hosting candidate picnic

State and federal Democratic candidates are expected to turn out Saturday for a barbecue at Math Field.

According to a flier, the Spalding County Democratic Party will inaugurate, in conjunction with the Democratic parties of Lamar, Pike and Fayette counties, the annual Third Congressional District Picnic on Saturday. The event will begin at 4 p.m., with speeches beginning at 5 p.m. The menu will include roasted pig, along with all the fixings, all for free.

The following candidates will attend the cookout: gubernatorial candidates David Poythress, DuBose Porter and Carl Camon; Attorney general candidate Rob Teilhet; Secretary of State candidates Gail Buckner, Gary Horlacher, Michael Mills and Angela Moore; Insurance commissioner candidate Mary Squires; State superintendent of schools candidates Brian Westlake and Beth Farokh; and U.S. Senate candidate R.J. Hadley.

“We just thought that one county by itself couldn’t do that much, so we decided to pool our resources so we could have a bigger gathering,” Spalding County Democratic Party Chairman Jesse Maddox said when asked how the event came about.

He said he hopes Democrats from Spalding County and neighboring counties turn out.

“We’d like to have as much participation as possible,” he said.

Math Field is on Georgia Highway 92 approximately four miles west of the Griffin Wal-Mart Supercenter. THE GRIFFIN DAILY NEWS.
