See this article from Augusta Chronicle about Cox and Taylor in the upcoming session. This began to make me wonder if either one of these high-profile candidates will experience a boost from their work in the session, which will end just a few months before the Primary.
Will Taylor get more of a boost, since he is more associated with the session, or his position so insignificant that no one will see a difference? Will anyone except those associated with the session hear anything about this? Is this a non-issue?
In general, most people don’t even know that the legislature is in session, so here is a question that I am going to throw out there for discussion now, but I will ask it again in a couple of months, in order to re-evaluate: What kind of an affect, if any, will the ’06 session have on the Primaries?
