    YES! YES! YES! MAN This is great. I hope he gets on it and raises a ton of cash quick and the Dems all freak out and start finding an opponent because, well, anyway and then we get a real primary! YES! This is what it was going to take, Georgia. If the Dems have competition in a primary for U.S. Senate then Georgians may pay attention to them again. Never know. If not, the entire middle-right to the right goes to the GOP Primary, leaving liberals and those moderate D’s and some moderate Rs. That race? Vernon can win.

    Georgia is ready for nutjobs like Vernon Jones to be put in an insane asylum and finally receive the mental help they’ve long needed.

    For a three way with Florida and South Carolina? Consensual of course… He’s learned his lesson.

    Did the Dems forget about Mark Taylor? I am not a supporter but he could be a credible Dem candidate in a statewide race.

      After getting squashed like a bug on a windshield by Sonny Perdue in 2006, yeah, the Dems pretty much forgot about Mark Taylor.

      With the ridiculously overwhelming advantages in emotional intensity, funding and organization that the GOP will have in the 2014 U.S. Senate Race there likely will be no such thing as a “credible Dem candidate” for that statewide race.

      Going up against the overwhelmingly heavily-funded and battle-hardened Republican nominee in this one will be like sending someone armed with a plastic butter knife to faceoff with someone armed with an ICBM (Intercontinental Ballistic Missle).
      The Democrat nominee (if there even is one) will be no match for a Republican nominee who is likely to have come out of the GOP primary fight of their lives in a very-conservative state where anti-Democrat sentiment is at an all-time high.

      Georgia Democrats would do well to send in one of the youngsters off of the bench to gain some experience for future statewide contests by way of a “Baptism-by-Fire”.

        Missouri and Indiana….The Republicans are always just one comment from a win.Could happen in Ga. if you nominate the wrong person.

        • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

          Georgia ain’t Missouri or Indiana. Georgia Democrats have virtually no shot of winning this U.S. Senate seat in 2014.

          Georgia Democrats’ best move for now is to work on laying the foundation for the future so that they be able to better compete and take better advantage of increasingly favorable demographics in future election cycles, something that the party is wholly incapable of at the moment.

            I agree, if the Dems are smart about this they would groom a strong female candidate to ride the Hillary wave in 16…….Women will be out in full force for the first female president…..add that to a demographic change, it is game on with the right candidate……btw I have no idea if the Dems can pull this off, nor even who could be the candidate…….I know very little about the party……..

            The bizarre part is the best GOP candidate to fight the Hillary wave Christie is not welcomed by the base……..if the GOP stays with the purity formula 16 could be a major game changer for the Dems…..rippling even into traditional strong holds in the south……

            • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

              I agree…like I just alluded to on Charlie’s page urging the GOP to stop the infighting, the Dems could likely win big in Georgia in ’16 if Georgia Dems took fundraising as seriously as the Georgia GOP and the national Democratic party has taken it.

            • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

              Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign showed just how immensely powerful of a thing fundraising (and organization and voter outreach) can be when fully utilized.
