Had an interesting conversation today with a GOP friend of mine who heard the rumor I had reported on a while back, but with more substantive details. Thereafter, I called a high ranking Democrat friend of mine who says he believe it to be true, based on private conversations he has had. “It’s a done deal,” the Democrat told me. “Mark Taylor will not run for Governor. The most likely scenario is that we clear the field for Lt. Governor and keep him there, but there are those who are still talking about it. Everybodies’ internals are showing that Cathy is the stronger candidate.”
From what the GOP friend said, the folks he is talking to reported, I think accurately, that Democrats do not, unlike Republicans, eat their own. As a result, an accomodation will be made for Taylor and Cox will take on Perdue.
Interesting, my Democrat friend adds this tidbit: ‘We know we’re not taking back the Senate.”
