According to a review of campaign finance reports by the Associated Press, Democratic candidates for the state House and Senate are raising more campaign funds than their Republican counterparts by greater than a 2 to 1 margin.
… Democrats have raised more than $14.4 million in their effort to retain control of the [...]
This “black Democrat family meeting” later today potentially has “party headache” written all over it. However, when the invitations were sent in the aftermath of Patricia Todd securing the Democratic Party nomination for HD 54 Representative (against the wishes of “family meeting” organizer Joe Reed), emotions were higher than they are now.
I hear that results of an independent poll will be coming out (probably this weekend) that show Folsom ahead of Strange, perhaps at or beyond the margin of error.
If the conflict of a small town newspaper versus a small town mayor interests you, then there is a somewhat curious story in Hanceville, Alabama (population 2,947 in 2002). Some of the details include the editor/publisher being forcibly removed from a city council meeting, a lawsuit for $1 million, a countersuit, plus a [...]
I can’t say it any better than Birmingham Blues, Between the Links, or Alablawg already have.
Google Trends lets you compare search volumes for multiple terms.

Joe Reed, Frank Matthews has got you covered.
Frank Matthews copied me on some email intended for Rick Sellers saying that he (Matthews) would debate Rick Sellers any place, any time – presumably including on the air on Matthews’ radio show.
Republican consultant Rick Sellers challenged Joe Reed, the vice chairman [...]
Like Noah and his neighbors, Georgia’s Christian Coalition and the national organization are waving goodbye with no plans to see one another again.
