SD 7 Special Election Tomorrow

Democrat Laura Hall and Republican Paul Sanford debate tonight on the eve of tomorrow’s election in Senate District 7. It will be on WHNT-19 from 6:30 to 7, and you can see it streamed on the internet here. How many people will really tune it to watch it, and how many of them will be undecided voters?

I hear a little more optimism about the election among Democrats than I do among Republicans, though we know that turnout is the key for a special election. Republicans are saying that they did as well as or better than the Democrats in getting absentee ballots returned. I hear anecdotally that Democrats have 70 or 80 people up there now knocking on doors of residents, and they believe they are ahead in the ground game. On the other side, a Republican close to the campaign tells the Parlor that they knocked on over 1000 doors on Saturday alone, and that they have 20-30 people out today and tomorrow continuing to go door to door.

Rumors, rumors… If you are interested in rumors about polls, AEA supposedly has a poll showing Hall ahead. And there are rumors that a poll done for the GOP shows a statistical dead heat between the candidates.

    I am still waiting on that great AEA poll the Davis crowd has been bragging about for months.

    Also, I am still waiting for them to come up with ONE, just ONE major issue Davis breaks with Obama on.

    Just one please. Or how ANYTHING?! Well I guess they do have different favorite teams?!

    Then I guess it’s shut up time. Bet on Hall winning on Tuesday.

Legislative Dispatch

A Look from the Rearview Mirror

This Thursday will mark the last day of the legislative Session.  For some, it was a Session that seemed would never end.  For others, it was one that ended much too quickly.  It may be early, yet, to write an obit on this Session, but as we approach the finish line, some perspective may be in order.

Putting Students First

As you know, a very important piece of legislation will be presented for our consideration in the House tomorrow in Montgomery – Senate Bill 310 – the “Students First” tenure and fair dismissal reform bill. Like me, many House members have been inundated with phone calls and emails from opponents of this bill, and some have been [...]

Legislative Transparency

There are a lot of issues to debate before we begin the final days of this session. In fact, I am quite certain there will be some comments on this post debating many of them. Before we get into the last seven day of the session I wanted to bring up a topic that [...]
