Since Peach Pundit started, I have been decrying a lack of solid messaging by the Georgia Republicans. My theory is that the Georgia GOP should come up with a comprehensive set of conservative political reforms and push forward. Well, meet ALEC. ALEC is the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative version of the National Conference of Legislators, which, as ungrounded third party organizations are prone to do, has drifted leftward.
Why is ALEC so significant? In addition to being the go to place for conservative legislators seeking free market ideas for their state, the current chairman of ALEC’s National Board of Directors is one Earl Ehrhart — yes Georgia’s Earl Ehrhart.
I’m a huge, huge fan of ALEC. I didn’t realize Ehrhart was the Chairman. That’s just cool.
