Deep down in today’s Political Insider, Jim Galloway notes that Jane Kidd won’t seek re-election to be chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia

Jane Kidd, chairman of the state Democratic party, e-mailed a note to members of the state committee on Monday evening, indicating that she will not seek another term.

Names mentioned to replace her include state Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond and former Atlanta mayor Shirley Franklin. The deadline for submitting notice of candidacy to the party is Dec. 16. The election will be on Jan. 29, in Warner Robins.

How many people are on the board/committee/association that names her successor?

325 or thereabout. The state committee has representatives from every county in the state, weighted by population. It is a bit unwieldy, and a big problem is getting a meeting quorum from across the state. People have to drive a long way for a central gathering in Georgia – the largest state geographically this side of the Mississippi.

Jane Kidd’s leadership has left Georgia as a thoroughly Red State. I wonder if she was a GOP mole all along?

We Republicans will wear black arm bands for weeks.

Can’t you guys PLEASE ask her to reconsider? We would be truly appreciative!
