We’ve gotten a number of emails from people who were impressed with Scott Holcomb’s debate performance. It might be too little too late, but I think he’s had a last minute surge. I don’t know that he can pull it off, but I think he has some momentum.
I talked to Scott just a little while ago. He’s phone banking hard. He admits that in a race of six, it is tough. He thinks he is going to get into the runoff, but I don’t know how sure his campaign is. They started late and have been outmatched in fundraising and endorsements.
That said, he picked up Wesley Clark’s endorsement, which should give him some mileage. He’s also a veteran, though I wonder if that would help him more as a Republican than a Democrat who needs metro Atlanta votes to win.
All in all though, I think if Holcomb makes it to the runoff, which is possible, he’d be a stellar candidate. One way or the other, though, if he plays his cards right, Holcomb will probably be a rising star on the Democrat side. Oh, and if you check is website, he has a smoking hot wife too!
