Georgia women take two different paths to claim Democratic PSC nominations

I found this historic photo on Dawn Randolph’s Twitter page.

Democrat Lindy Miller ran against two men and won with nearly 2/3 of the vote in the Georgia Public Service Commission Post 3 race. Fellow Dem Dawn Randolph faced one man and took more than 3/4 of ballots cast for Post 5. Lindy committed heavily to fundraising and ran a well-financed campaign with money for Atlanta TV ads, which do not come cheap. Dawn, who’s run for the PSC before, had a shoestring campaign, raising just a few thousand dollars.

Republican Commissioners Chuck Eaton and Tricia Pridemore have campaigns financed by utility interests. Lindy and Dawn do not. There are many reasons to vote Democratic, and especially for the PSC, but the issue of campaign financing alone should be enough to drive even the most Republican of ratepayers to vote for Lindy and Dawn.

On top of that, the place is a swampy mess. You’ll see.

Go Blue.
