Rural Democrat Jeana Brown Campaign picking up Steam

Down the road in SE Georgia, Jeana Brown (D-McKinnon) is looking to become the first democrat to represent HD 178 in 6 years as she goes up against four other republicans for the seat.

During the process Brown has picked up some crucial endorsements as she looks to win the special election without a runoff, but most likely there maybe a runoff to determine who the final two candidates will be. People endorsing Brown are:

Wayne County

County Commissioner James "Boot" Thomas
City Councilwoman Tiffany Frasier
City Councilman Don Darden
Former Mayor Tommie Fuller

Brantley County

Mayor Pro-tem Rev Robert Thomas
City Commissioner Richard Johns
School Board Member Dot Hickox
County Commissioner Chris "Skipper" Harris

Pierce County

School Board Member Melvin Johnson
Blackshear Chief of Police Larry Ethridge
Clarence Washington

State Rep Al Wiliams (D-Midway), Ware County Commissioner Carlos Nelson, former gubernatorial candidate Carl Camon & 1st Congressional District candidate Bill Gillespie

Brown is the only democrat in the race & have waged a strong grassroot campaign thus far in the race. Newly elected minority leader Stacey Abrams (D-Atlanta) will headline a fundraiser for Brown on Jan 22 down in Wayne County.
