I don’t really know much about Rep. Barry Fleming, so I headed over to his Legislative Bio Page. Man, this guy has worked for a lot of Democrats in his lifetime. I wouldn’t be surprised if his father (former Columbia Co school board chair) was a Democratic before Columbia became a super-Republican county and politics necessitated a change.
I guess my question is, do Georgia Republicans care about RINO party switchers anymore. I know they used to, but would you guys look at someone’s prior leanings and associations in making a decision about who to send to Congress? Georgia is seemingly proudly “red” — do you guys want to send a message to the Congress, or someone who might be a Democrat if they lived in North Decatur instead of North Augusta?
