Georgia Democrats: Roy Can't Do it All by Himself, Part 2.

The man is out there at this very moment on tour of Rural Georgia while the Republican Candidates fight it out for the nomination. You see Roy isn't waiting around for the winner, he's out there right now shaking hands, talking to folks, drinking RC Colas, etc. It was great to see Darryl Hicks, candidate for Labor Commissioner as well as Keith Moffett candidate for PSC Commission District 2 seat on the backroads of Rural Georgia this weekend.

But where are the others? Mary Squires (Insurance Commisisoner), Joe Martin (School Superintendent), J.B. Powell (Agriculture Commissioner), Carol Porter (Lt. Governor), Mike Thurmond (U.S. Senate)? Ken Hodges is out there campaigning, he's not waiting for the GOP runoff for Attorney General to begin his road towards the Attorney General's office. Gail Buckner & Georganna Sinkfield are in a runoff for Secretary of State.

But back to the others, its time to hit the road running. No one has heard a word from these candidates since the Primary. There are 100 days remaining until the General Election & there's no time to just take it easy & just hope Roy's coattails will pull you to the finish line. That's the Jim Martin recipe for disaster in which Martin decided to ride the coattails of Obama, only to get slaughtered in the runoff.
Rural Georgia is the place to be 80 out of the last 100 days before the primary. All of you have relatively low Name I.D. & the more you are seen on the trail, the better the voters will know who you are. You can't run a statewide race from home or from Metro Atlanta. Its time to get a taste of some of this Red Clay.

ROY CAN'T DO THIS ALL BY HIMSELF! TO MAKE GEORGIA WORK, Y'ALL NEED TO BE ON THE TRAIL TO AREAS WHERE DEMOCRATS ONCE DOMINATED IN ORDER TO RETURN TO THE GLORY YEARS.

Hi Keith, Check out my facebook. I was in three towns Sunday alone. Atlanta, Dublin and Savannah. We just don';t have as much money to spend to make sure you all are knowing what we are doing. I have not stopped since I won the primary. I am so motivated to make sure small business and their employees have a thriving economy and to make sure our precious children get an education that my staff worries about my health.
Thanks for your blog because it is a great way to get those of us- with not quite as much money as Roy- to let others know we are out here working as hard as we can go! By the way Roy is working hard and I think he is making the right choices in his campaign. We can win this thing in November and for the good of the citizens of Georgia we sure do need to.
Thank for all your hard work. ( As you can tell I read your blog and really appreciate your efforts!)

My apologies to you Mrs. Porter. Yes you have been out there on the trail since the primary. I was starting to become concerned that besides Roy & Ken Hodges that no other dems are out on the trail taking advantage of the nasty infighting of the GOP. I am a supporter of yours & hopefully I'll see you somewhere on the trail here in Rural Ga. Your message resonates with Georgians who are fed up with the business as usual atmosphere up at the State Capitol. Like I said before, it will come down to Rural Ga for the demos in november. Good Luck!
