    Good slogan “Promoting our Farmers, Protecting our Families.” Not so good putting Osama on screen first with so much time. It almost gives the ad a negative feel to it.

  2. Bud says:

    Gary’s strength? What strength? Where is all this strength yall always talk about?

    Kemp is runnign the campaign that will win.

  3. SouthernConservative says:

    In my neck of the woods, Black has plenty of yard signs up and I haven’t seen any Kemp signs.

  4. Billings says:

    You can tell Gary’s people don’t have anything to say. They are scrambling. The inexperienced democrat has just been slapped down and hasn’t gotten back up. Go cry to Betsy the show cow Gary.

    I think the “promoting our farmers, protecting our families” is gold. He sums up his race in a quick and concise manner that appeals across the board. I truly think the downfall in this ad is his speaking role- voice-over would have been the way to go.

    As great as this ad was, I really think that Bob Greer is going to surprise a lot of people when the primary comes around. Did anyone read the article in the AJC, it made Greer sound truly on top of the game. I wouldn’t be surprised if that in June-July that camp pulls out all the stops and turns a lot of heads. I heard he has got a lock on the farmers in south georgia, who don’t trust Gary Black and know that Brian Kemp has no experience. Although this won’t gain him a ton of votes, that along with a strategic Greer Marketing Campaign might do the job???

    I also heard that Newt Gingrich’s camp has denied endorsing Gary Black and that the AJC is digging on that as well. By the way ole Newt will be seeking the republican nomination for President in the next election- mark my words.

    Black signs are also all over Douglasville, I dont know if that is where you are from SC, but it is the same, there are no Kemp signs anywhere, and Black’s signs have been there for almost 3 weeks now. Also Reed has hit Douglasville and Cagle has just a few signs in Carrollton near the VFW. There are also Hecht signs in Douglasville and Carrollton, but I haven’t seen a Martin sign outside of Atlanta and havent seen a Miles sign at all.

  7. SouthernConservative says:

    I’m not from D’ville, Melb, but that sounds real close to what it’s like here. I’ve seen one apiece for Hecht and Martin, though Hecht has a billboard or two. We’re seeing a steady increase in Reed and Black, a few for Cagle down around the interstate rideofways, and none for Kemp.

    This is clearly a two horse race between Kemp and Black.

    Kemp’s ad will play well with the Republican voter and Kemp is going about doing what it takes to win elections all across the state.I agree with Erick,I think there is a good chance there will be a runoff,but I differ on the outcome of a runoff.Kemp has put together a strong state wide network and will win this race and is the only person who can win in November.

    Like it or not the choice is Conservative Republican Senator or Johnny Come Lately Lobbyist…KEMP ’06

    If campaigns were won by yard signs we would have a totally different set of elected officials. Seriously, do you guys really think that yard signs win campaigns. Gee whiz.

  10. The Busdriver says:

    I was at a small event a week ago and the Gary Black people had handed our lots of Vote Black clicker-clackers. They were handing out pens as well.

    The pen/clicker-clacker/yard sign juggernaut is coming. Best get out of the way.

  11. Mojo says:

    I’m from south Georgia and all I see are Gary Black signs. Not a single Kemp sign in sight. Also, there are quite a few Cagle and Taylor signs.

    jackson,

    Didn’t you get the memo? Man, you need to get back in the loop, it’s all about the yard signs.

    Talking about strength…apparently Kemp doesn’t know his own strength …ATHENS. I haven’t seen one sign, ad, mailer, push-card or anything. Whereas, Black is encroaching on his territory. I can understand that Kemp doesn’t need to bend over backwards in Athens and the rest of his senatorial district, but gosh, I’m not so sure folks even know he’s not reseeking his senate seat and is going for Ag. Commissioner. Black has covered some ground in Athens and around the area; not just South Georgia.

    If I was Kemp, I’d make sure that my easy, solid and loyal base KNEW I was running…
    If I was Balck, I’d lay siege on Kemp in his district, it seems as if Kemp is taking it for granted…

  13. Jeff Emanuel says:

    I hate to disagree with you, UGAMatthew, but I’ve been seeing a few Kemp signs here in Athens (even though signs are illegal this far from the election), and lots of stickers. I just saw the TV ad…looked good, and they appear to have gotten him to speed up his speech for the spot

  14. aggie says:

    KEMP DOES NOT KNOW HE NEEDS ATHENS, BLACK DOES NOT KNOW HE NEEDS TO SHOW UP AS A REPUBLICAN——–

    BOB GREER WILL BE THE CANDIDATE MONEY OR NO——-IT TAKES VOTES AND PEOPLE TO SUPPORT YOU TO GET ELECTED AND

    SOUTH GA AND NORTH GA AND MIDDLE GA——-ARE ——- GREER ALL OVER —YOU CAN PUT UP SIGNS TIL THE COWS COME HOME IF YOU DON’T SHAKE HANDS AND TALK TO PEOPLE YOU GET NO WHERE.

    NO ONE TRUSTS A GUY LIKE BLACK A LOBBYIST
    KEMP NEEDS A REAL JOB
    BOB GREER HAS WHAT IT TAKES TO BEAT IRVIN NOW.

  15. Capt. says:

    HAHA! Aggie, hate to break it to ya, but Bob doesn;t have a prayer. He got 30% of the vote in 98. He couldnt beat Irvin then and he can;t now.

    Good luck meeting 450,000 people.

    Bob needs to get a grip on reality.

    You are right about Gary Black being a democrat lobbyist though.
