    “MAC” or Michael A. Collins is an old truck driver who reminds me of Lee Ferrell the old Sargent who is running against Bishop in the 2nd District. They will never be polished but doggone it people like them:)

    • Mac and Ferrell are two different beasts. Mac was a Congressman, who understands the systems and nearly beat Marshall.

      Ferrell can’t claim any of those things, but he’s a good guy.

      Mac was not only a truck driver, but also operated his own company.

      Regardless, this is a nice endorsement for Max Wood’s campaign.

      If there is any justice in the world, Ken Hodges will be sharing a jail cell with John Oxendine by then.

        Certainly, HowardRoark, you don’t think that the Ox has done anything wrong or illegal, do you? Just to let you know, I laughed out loud over this one. 🙂

    Ron: You are so right. Mac Collins was a baller when he came to congress. Truck driver…please. Try owner of a trucking company and true millionaire before he became an expert on Ways and Means. At times, truck drivers get more money for moving crops from the field to market than the farmer got for growing them.
