Hat Tip: Beltway Blogroll (which has an overview of the runoff)
Posted on Cynthia McKinney’s blog on 7/20/06:
As you know, there will be a runoff election in the 4th District of Georgia on Tuesday August 8th. I will be pitted against a mostly unknown and unproven opponent, who will nonetheless have the unanimous backing of big national media and national money. The media and money behind my opponent will do their utmost to polarize the election along racial and party lines. To win, they must provoke a stampede of Republican voters to the polls on August 8th. To accomplish this, they must and will portray not just my voice, but yours too, as dangerous, unpatriotic and downright loony.
These wealthy and powerful interests fear my voice because it is your voice. That is what this August 8 runoff election will be about. Will the authentic voices of our people — your voices — be silenced, or will we refuse to lose?
So what about it? Will there be a Republican stampede to boot Cynthia? What about the important runoffs for Ag. and SoS?
