Chili & Politics…

The Henry County Republican Party held a Chili Cook-Off this past Saturday in McDonough. The Henry Herald has a recap of the event:

The event attracted 530 chili-cookers, chili-tasters, and upcoming Republican candidates for an evening of food, speeches, music, dancers, and everything but antacid. The event even attracted more than 40 Clayton County residents.“We were looking to have about 300 to 350 people,

    “state Rep. John Lunsford, R-McDonough, one of Henry’s most powerful House members.”

    How many House members does Henry have?

  2. JaseLP says:

    Ralph Reed had signs everywhere, but no one was very supportive of him. Reed had his people put signs about 500 feet leading up to the building. They were spaced less than a foot apart…at least that’s the way it seemed.

    I noticed a lot of people sporting Casey Cagle stickers around the room. Can’t say that for Reed.

  3. Beth says:

    I was told the following:

    Ralph and Casey were both there. Ralph worked the crowd, Casey had to leave early.

    Handel and Bailey were there, no Stephens. Handel had signs, flyers and staff there. Handel was working the crowd hard.

    Black and Greer were there, no Kemp, all three had signs and flyers. Black and Greer were both working the crowd.

    McGuire was there. so was Eaton

  4. Billings says:

    Greer was there, we had to bring his whole family and extended family to make it look like he had support.

    Reed was there with thousands of signs.

    Cagle was there with signs and volunteers and good effort.

    Brown, McGuire and Eaton were there.

    Kemp’s people were there with a huge ground war and stickers.

    Oh and Black was there trying to fit in with Republicans.

  5. Billings says:

    Refering to Greer… **He*** had to bring his whole family. I didn’t mean to put “we”. I am definitely part of that Camp.

  6. Pinetop says:

    Did anyone else see the “Vote Gary Black” Banner flying at the NASCAR Race yesterday? (If you want to call it a race)

  7. HJ Bailey says:

    Hard to see with the rain and being so cloudy. I would call it a waste of money but i could be wrong.

  8. jay says:

    Did anyone attend the Reed Statewide Grassroots Victory conference? I was wondering how the turnout was or if any key people showed up?

  9. Beth says:

    Reed claims 30 counties were represented Sat. That was in his email update hat went out today. One can only guess what the real numbers were. I can’t find anybody that was there.

  10. Bull Moose says:

    I hear there were only about 50 or so people at the Reed meeting and of those about a handful were Casey Cagle supporters!

    You’d think this man would have some self respect and drop out already…
