Jane Kidd and the rest of Georgia’s Democratic Party leaders were scheduled to hold a closed-door meeting earlier this afternoon “to see if they [could] unify behind one candidate to fill the congressional seat left open by the death of U.S. Rep. Charlie Norwood,” according to the Athens Banner-Herald.
Left out in the cold by this move is Democrat Terry Holley, who was smoked by Norwood in the November 7 election (losing by a 2-1 margin), and who has already declared his candidacy in this special election.
“I’ve been running since Nov. 8,” said Holley.
A noble sentiment indeed. Now, is there anybody viable who wants to run for this seat from the Democrat side? (Yes, I see your hand, Mr. Holley. No, you still don’t count.)
