An email from the Cobb County GOP tells me that Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus will be doing a “statewide media event” at the Cobb GOP headquarters on Tuesday, August 19th, at 10:45am.  The Cobb County party requests you RSVP if you plan to attend, via email.

When was the last time the RNC chair came to Georgia? I think this is the first visit from an national party chairman since Debbie Wasserman-Schultz came for the JJ dinner a few years ago.

He has been here before, in February, 2013. Michael Steele also visited Georgia, including Statesboro, when he was Chair.

I’d say it’s a pretty big deal for the RNC chairman to pay us a visit. I’m sure speculation is flying already, but I doubt this is just a friendly visit. The RNC, my guess at least, sees Georgia as a potential toss-up state in the years to come and potentially this year with two competitive Democratic candidates vying for the two top statewide slots.

I might go… to ask him why he stood up my cousin on their third date in 1989. She really liked him.

Plus I could make fun of his accent.

I have a correction from the cousin… it was 1987. He started dating his current wife a few weeks later. My bad.

Dude… some of your family’s stories are pretty funny.

I really want Ellynn to write a book.
