Georgia sleaze alert: Fran Millar comes out with push poll, lies about Sally Harrell’s record

Jonathan Grant @Brambleman on Twitter I’ve known Georgia State Sen. Fran Millar for nearly twenty years, broken bread with him, and I held a certain amount of respect for him, though that has diminished as I watched his slide toward the Trumpism that has consumed the Republican Party. I will not be voting for him in November. Millar has tried to separate himself somewhat from the president, claiming he likes Trump’s policies but not his behavior. That’s a distinction without a difference, since Trump’s behavior and policy are intertwined; both are children of his ego. Look out, Canada! If Millar dislikes Trump’s behavior, he has a funny way of showing it, because he’s been emulating POTUS. Millar can be gruff, acerbic, and…

1% of Ossoff donations would fully fund Sally Harrell’s Georgia Senate campaign

Above: Photo by Laurel Cantrell So why don’t we do this? Seriously. If we want to turn Georgia blue in the 2020 presidential election, we need a much better ground game. No Democratic challenger for a legislative seat in the state has a more advanced ground game than Resistance leader Sally Harrell. She just won a landslide victory in the primary and now she squares off against This Guy. Yeah, the one who wants to restrict black voters in favor of “more educated voters.” We have to beat this guy. You can help. In 2017, Dems spent $30M on #GA06 and failed. Better strategy: build Dem strength locally: support former #GA06 candidate @sallyharrellga in #GASD40, Georgia's most flippable district. 1% of Ossoff…

Reps. Oliver, Henson, Holcomb are big supporters of Sally Harrell

Above: Rep. Scott Holcomb, Rep. Mary Margaret Oliver, Sally Harrell #GASD40, Rep. Michele Henson At Monday night’s Henderson Middle School town hall, DeKalb State Reps. Mary Margaret Oliver, Michele Henson, and Scott Holcomb briefed Lakeside area residents about the 2018 General Assembly session and took time to praise a former colleague now running for State Senate. The three Democratic legislators said that the session had produced some notable successes, notably increased school funding. Oliver said that while the Senate had passed divisive legislation,such as the anti-gay adoption bill, House Speaker David Ralston and other leaders had ensured that the legislation died in the House. She also praised Gov. Nathan Deal’s work on criminal justice reform. She expressed hope that Gwinnett voters would…

Sally Harrell ad: Latest shot fired in Georgia Senate’s most flippable district

That feeling when you have a solid message and your volunteer team includes television producers: While Sally Harrell faces primary opposition, her campaign will soon report successful fundraising numbers and an army of volunteers is organizing throughout the district. This is an incredibly well-organized, motivated team in the Heart of the Resistance, containing some of the bluest precincts in GA06. Sally has taken on many battle-hardened Ossoff veterans to make up her team, which would rival many Congressional campaigns in size. Well-funded, well-staffed, and supremely motivated. District 40 incumbent Fran Millar has never faced such a formidable opponent during his two decades in the General Assembly. His endorsement of Trump Administration policies and his penchant for impolitic, racially-tinged speech has hurt his brand in a well-educated…

What Makes Sally Run?

I intended to sit down and write a strictly biographical piece about Sally Harrell, but first I want to address some drama that’s been playing out over the past few days in Georgia’s 40th District State Senate race. It seems Sally’s opponent got on Facebook and attacked her as the “establishment candidate,” backed by “the elite.” Some kind of deal was made! Well, no. Here’s the link to what I’m talking about—a secondhand, anonymously-sourced claim that Sally made a deal to get out of this year’s Sixth Congressional Race in exchange for support for her state Senate campaign. Which is ridiculous on its face, because anyone who’s been a three-term state legislator and geared up to run for Congress would be capable…
