Down In Macon

I hear that David Lucas is considering running for mayor. I also hear that a number of Republicans are upset with Mike Cranford, who recently won a special election for the Macon City Council. Cranford is accused of being too “nanny state-ish

    The mayor of Macon has said publicly that Sen. Robert Brown is his choice to replace him. That ought to be the kiss of death. I have heard that Brown is interested in running for chairman of the Bibb County Board of Commissioners. In either case, bad news for Bibb County in my opinion.

    I don’t think there is a lot of love for Lucas. He’s radical. Folks are tired of gutter politics. I think we are close to the end of the cycle of the Cotton Ave. Mafia.

    Contrary to what a lot of Republicans believe, black folks aren’t that small minded. The black community is tired of being branded that they’ll only support a black democrat candidate that is radical.

    That being said, a black candidate will have a fairer opportunity than a caucasian. The Republican’s have one candidate that is running and the dems have a field of 5 serious contenders.

    Our guy can hang with these folks. And really all politics boil down to marketing. Our’s is a solid conservative and pro business.

    Saturday he spoke for a few minutes and he made a strong impression on the group. Everyone was supportive.

    Cranford isn’t a Republican. He attends no Republican functions, even when he’s invited. He endorsed the Democrat for commission chair and is endorsing Cathy Cox and raising money for her.

    If we run a candidate against him, I think we could unseat him.
