Gingrey, Pridemore Top Cobb GOP BBQ Straw Poll

The parade was cancelled but the BBQ went on.  The Cobb GOP managed to feed several hundred folks Williamson Brothers BBQ (possibly a Peach Pundit BBQ stop in the future) and of course, virtually any and all of the campaigns in the area were represented.

A straw poll was conducted for U.S. Senate and 11th District Congress, and the results are as follows:

U.S. Senate:

Gingrey:  146

Broun:  81

Handel:  68

Kingston:  64


11th District Congress:

Pridemore:  108

Barr:  103

Loudermilk:   77

Lindsey:  41

Make of those (and any pics you find of Bob Barr wearing a hat bigger than he is) what you will.

    Instead of straw polls, I’d like some group to do something different next time. Arm wrestling, trivia contests, an Iron Chef competition.

    Just not a bathing suit competition….

    The “Colonel’s” potential run was creating the biggest buzz! We cannot fix broken Washington by electing another politician looking for a promotion. That includes candidates that have been working at failed beauracratic appointed positions.

      You know, I really hate that saying “we can not fix washington by electing another politician looking for a promotion.” Simply put, why is legislative experience a bad thing? A lot of elected officials running in the open congressional races have done a lot of good for Georgia over the years and passed meaningful legislation. So since they think they can make a difference at the national level there motivated by greed?

      Isn’t the “colonel” another politician looking for a promotion? In my view, he’s another establishment GOPer, no different than Marco Rubio (another state legislator who moved to DC).
