More and more it looks as if Sue Everhart has the race for Chairman of the Georgia GOP locked up. Recently, Governor Perdue gave ‘quite blessing’ to Everhart. Yesterday according to the Political Insider Sadie Fields, former State Chairman of the Georgia Christian Coalition and current leader of the Georgia Christian Alliance climbed aboard the Everhart bandwagon.
Fields said this in an email to supporters:
Sue is the most qualified candidate in the race for Party Chairman. She is the current First Vice-Chair of the Georgia Republican Party and a long-time Republican Party leader and grassroots activist. She has worked on dozens of local, state and national campaigns and been named Volunteer of the Year by both the National and Georgia Republican Parties. She has also served in various other capacities in the party including Sixth District Chairman.
Sue now has people from across the Republican spectrum on her side, which says quite a bit about her leadership capabilities.
On the other side of the spectrum from Fields is frequent PP commenter and publisher of the Political Vine Bill Simon, who said this about Ms. Everhart in an email on January 30th:
I know Sue personally and I would not be her supporter for this position if she did not possess ALL of the characteristics of what is needed to be a competent leader in charge of the State Republican Party.
Perhaps it’s time for Anthony-Scott Hobbs to consider dropping out of the race.
