      Based upon what I heard and nothing else, if I lived in that District, I would probably vote for Bryant. (I would find out more about the other candidates to be sure what I heard was true.) I’m almost currious enough to see what the demographics and vote history of that district is.

        it was charles walker’s district back in the day, downtown augusta over toward the bottom by the sav’h river s.e. of downtown, it was won once by a gop, but that was when walker was under indictment and local clergy backed hall over walker. otherwise a very safely dem inner city district.

    So does this finally change the Libertarian Party’s campaign strategy from “just mention we are ‘true conservatives'” to something like “hey, maybe we should look at voting trends and demographics and actually target winnable races and recruit decent candidates”?

    • Actually, I think we continue what we’re doing… GROWING! I just compared percentages in past elections in Richmond County with 3 or more candidates that a libertarian was on the ballot. Taylor Bryant more than tripled the best showing I’ve seen so far. Not bad, since we just started to organize the county just over a year ago.

      As for continuing to recruit decent candidates, I agree with that. But as for testing the prevailing winds and offering to be the one at the front of the line to lead for more of the same, we’re too principled to do that. Let the D’s and R’s potential leadership compete on whom can lead the people off the cliff they’re heading towards the fastest and we’ll stay over here warning people to get out of line and follow us if they want to survive by offering Freedom instead of “Free” stuff.
