Apparently, Dr. Christopher Cates has decided that there isn’t room for both Mr. Sisk and Paul Broun in the race for CD 10. Too crowded I guess.
Instead, he’s apparently going to try his hand at the open 9th Congressional seat, which already has 11 other folks in the race for the Republican nomination alone.
Apparently, Blake Aued who is one of those people we like to call “journalists”, and candidates like to call “lib’ral media”, decided to make some phone calls. He found the following:
However, a woman at Emory University, Cates’ former employer, pointed me to his Web site, still under construction, which says Cates is running in the 9th. That’s Rep. Nathan Deal’s district. Deal, of course, is running for governor, and just about every white male Republican over the age of 25 is lined up to take a crack at it already.
Cates’ Web site says his campaign headquarters is in Blairsville, which is in the 9th.
I could have made those calls too, but I was too busy trying to track down an invisible candidate for Governor, so I could speak to him and determine that he isn’t a viable candidate first hand, instead of relying on the fact that no one I know has seen him at a campaign event of any kind.
O.K., for those of you whose browser doesn’t read my sarcasm font, here’s the deal: We have a candidate who has filed for a congressional bid for the 10th CD, plans to actually run in the 9th CD, and appears to live in neither district.
Please provide some feedback for Tom Perdue as to whether he should claim he was trying to shop for the proper congressional district to purchase, or if he can’t handle paperwork and/or single digit numbers well.
Mr. Perdue can then make a recommendation to his client, and charge him a large retainer for the information you provide him here for free.
