Hat tip to JMS for getting us these.
Apparently, when Peach Pundit started making inquiries, Jane Kidd took down her ad laying the smack down to Bill Cowsert (I said this in jest, but a reader does, in fact, clarify that the ad was only running for four days). Talk about calling names in an ad. This one is pretty negative. But Bill punches back too.
And, if that doesn’t throw enough of a wrinkle into this race, check this out:
About three weeks before the Nov. 7 elections, the state Supreme Court on Monday will hear a challenge to an Athens Senate district redrawn by Republican lawmakers after a Democratic representative announced plans to seek the seat.
The redrawing – which was the only major map change by the Legislature this year – divides the Democratic stronghold of Athens into two Republican-dominated districts.
State Rep. Jane Kidd, D-Athens, is facing Republican Bill Cowsert to win the seat, which was vacated when incumbent Sen. Brian Kemp, a Republican, left to make an unsuccessful run for state agriculture commissioner.
A federal suit, in which Kidd was a plaintiff, has been thrown out. But the state case, filed by constituents in the new district, remains alive on appeal after an Athens Superior Court judge sided with the defendants.
