Pics of the day: Georgia Senate candidate and Resistance leader Sally Harrell

Judy and I hosted a “meet and greet” get-together to introduce Sally Harrell to some of our Northlake neighbors the other evening. It wasn’t a huge event, but it was fun, and our favorite political guy, Rep. Scott Holcomb showed up, too, which made it extra special. Sally is running against an entrenched GOP incumbent, Fran Millar, who’s never faced a serious challenge before. This time is different: Sally has a well-organized, energetic and growing team of volunteers. And Senate District Forty has been changing. It’s now considered Georgia’s most flippable Senate District, which includes much of North DeKalb, some of Sandy Springs in Fulton, and Peachtree Corners in Gwinnett.  Both Hillary Clinton and Jon Ossoff took the district’s precinct with around…

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…

1% of Ossoff donations would fully fund Sally Harrell’s GA Senate 40 campaign

Exciting news in Georgia: Georgia Democrats snatched three legislative seats y from Republicans. “The results are a rejection of Trump – it’s clear as day,” said state Rep. Scott Holcomb, D-Atlanta. “Republicans who continue to embrace him can start the countdown on their political careers.” However, if we’re going to kick out entrenched GOP incumbents–if we’re actually going to Flip Georgia’s Sixth Senate District–we need to support  strong local  candidates running campaigns within that district like Sally Harrell in Georgia’s 40th Senate District and Jen Jordan  in the Georgia 6th Senate District runoff December 5. It’s true: Jon Ossoff received $30 million in donations in his Sixth District race. And just 1% of that amount would fully fund @sallyharrellga‘s state Senate campaign. Read more…

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…
