    If there are people that think the Dems are going to recapture the House this year then they need to be checked into an insaine asylum.

    Coleman is probably retiring because he was sick of Bobby Kahn hitting him up for loans to keep the State Party afloat another month.

    I wonder if any Democrat will even run in this seat? My connections in Dodge County (my wife’s family) are saying they have known for many months he was not rerunning and that no Democrats are coming out yet. Dodge is very Democrat in their voting habits but the people are very Conservative.

    I actually heard that Coleman is indeed checking into an insane asylum b/c he thought Dems would take back control (I may or may not have really heard that). Either that, or Bobby K. bankrupted him.

    Dodge is conservative. They, like so many rural districts in the South have typically voted Democrat, but they, like so many rural districts in the South typically vote moreso on the candidates and more importantly, issues, so getting the right GOP candidate in there isn’t exactly impossible.

    I don’t know, but I would imagine there will be a push for Dee Yearty to switch and run for this house seat. She is currently running against Ross Tollesson for his Senate Seat. I would imagine this now-vacate House seat to be more winnable for the Democrats than Tollesson’s Senate seat. Nonetheless, I remain behind Wayne McGuinty, the Republican candidiate, one hundred percent.

    Dodge went 65% Bush, 65% Isackson, and 66% Perdue.

    So this talk about how VERY Democrat Dodge or that Dodge typically votes Democrat iis just old news. Dodge appears to be like so many other rural GA counties: always very Conservative, was Democrat, rapidly changing Republican – but will take care of their old Democrat incumbents.

    If it’s an open seat, all things being equal, a Republican would have AT LEAST a 50% chance of winning.
