One must now wonder when the hemmoraghing will stop for the Democrats. A friend was kind enough to inform me that Butch Parrish converted to the GOP last night. The steady march into the GOP has begun for rural Democrats. There should be no stronger indication that the Democrats will not be taking back the legislature in 2006. If the defections were not enough, the cash on hand difference should be.
Butch Parrish currently serves as State Representative for District 156, representing Emanuel, Jenkins and Johnson Counties and portions of Bulloch and Candler Counties. Representative Parrish is now in his 11th term of office as a state legislator. House Speaker Glenn Richardson recently appointed him to the Special Committee on Civil Justice Reform. He is presently serving as a member of the Economic Development and Tourism, Rules and Appropriations Committees.
