This comment deserves promotion:
Spoke with a good friend whoâ€™s in the Cox camp (though not on the campaign) and this is basically what they said about the info in this post:
Not sure what the tipster above meant about Robert Brown: heâ€™s already come out for Taylor, that was in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution weeks ago. Sounds like someone trying to set us up for a fall; Taylor is telling everyone that he has the entire Senate locked up and we canâ€™t believe heâ€™d do that unless thereâ€™s truth to the matter. Thereâ€™s no reason Taylor shouldnâ€™t have 99% of the Senate with him.
What we ARE hearing from the Senate is a general dislike of Taylor and his chances. Even many of those who will endorse him (and make no mistake, it will be most everyone) donâ€™t like him, donâ€™t respect him, and donâ€™t think he can win. Also, many Senators are telling us that they still expect Taylor to accept the writing on the wall and run for reelection, and they donâ€™t want to have to work with him for years to come after endorsing Cox.
