Georgia To Be Top Dog On Super Tuesday

Georgia’s delegation to the Republican National Convention will be the 4th largest in the nation (if the rules are enforced and Florida’s delegation is cut in half), but what’s better is that we might get a little more of the spotlight now that Texas has decided to push their presidential primary to April 4th rather than holding it on Super Tuesday (March 6th), according to today’s morning jolt from Jim Galloway.  Texas has a total of 155 delegates allocated compared to Georgia’s 76.

Perhaps just as important, Virginia has sidelined itself by limiting its ballot to Mitt Romney and Ron Paul. Other candidates, the state party ruled, didn’t come up with the required and vetted 10,000 signatures. Virginia has only 49 delegates, but its proximity to the District of Columbia would have meant an oversized media focus.

“You don’t have the whole field competing there. I guess Romney and Paul could,” Kemp surmised.

That leaves Georgia and Ohio (66 delegates) as the largest prizes. “If the race continues to Super Tuesday, we’re in a position to be very relevant that day. And that’s what we were hoping for,” the secretary of state said. “We’ll have to see how it plays out.”

GAGOP Annual Fish Fry in Perry, GA on Saturday, August 27th

What was Sonny’s Annual Fish Fry is now the Georgia Republican Party’s Annual Fish Fry.  It’ll be at the usual place down in Perry, GA at the Georgia National Fairgrounds from 12p ’til 2p (doors open at 11:30a for the early birds).  The cost is $15 (kids 6 and under are free, but the t-shirt is not included) and tickets can be purchased online, but there will be a limited number of tickets sold at the door.  For the statistical and presidential primary junkies out there, the GAGOP will be holding the first statewide 2012 presidential straw poll in Georgia as well.

It’s Over.

We are now past the state convention.  People were either disappointed, excited, or mixed from Saturday’s results.  Today is Monday, and we’re back to work as a state party.  First, let me thank all of those who chose to run for slots on the state executive committee.  These positions are statewide and are voluntary.  It took a lot of time, effort, and money to travel the state to speak to Republicans.  I appreciate the work you do for Republicans. 

Now is to reunite and move forward.  I understand that a lot of supporters are die-hards for their particular candidate, but it’s now over.  We can’t stay mad at each other just because our favorite candidate didn’t win.  The will of the convention spoke Saturday afternoon and we must live with it despite our personal feelings.  We are a team and can’t be divided if we want to carry Georgia for our Republican nominee for president.

Congratulations to Chairman Sue Everhart, 1st Vice Chairman Bert Guy, 2nd Vice Chairman BJ Van Gundy, Assistant Debbie McCord on winning your contested elections (as well as the other 2 who were elected to secretary and treasurer by acclamation).  I know Walker County, as well as other counties across the state, will be ready to work with the state party to get Republicans elected from the county courthouse all the way up to the White House.

Cheers.

On the GAGOP Campaign Trail: Coming to the End on May 14th

It’s been a long ride (really long for some), but we’re about to see how well the miles put on cars, the number of hands shook, pieces of literature mailed, and the number of robo-calls (and real calls) dialed will pay off at the GAGOP convention in Macon this Saturday.

CNN and CSPAN (and I’m sure other national media outlets) will be at the GAGOP Convention Banquet on Friday evening covering Newt’s speech live.  His first since he declared his candidacy yesterday.  If you can’t, or don’t want to, go to the convention banquet, you can always head over to the Peach Pundit Road Show.  I’m sure we’ll be around there even after the banquet is over, so stop on by and hang out with us for a bit.

Anyway, on to our last round of GAGOP updates…
