Teresa Tomlinson vs. David Perdue and the Easter Death Cult

By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman Last week, I interviewed former Columbus mayor Teresa Tomlinson, a Democrat running in the May 19 primary for a shot at unseating Republican incumbent David Perdue–or in her words, “send Perdue packing.” Tomlinson talked about problems and fixes, most notably expanding Medicaid. With experience both as an attorney and elected official, Tomlinson takes law and government seriously. She often discuses the Constitution and the role of government in people’s lives. Even before she was a Senate candidate, she spoke out on impeachment issues. She’s posted 14 policy papers on her website. Her major Democratic opponents, Sarah Riggs Amico and Jon Ossoff, have not troubled themselves with such details. It’s like she’s actually willing to prove her case that she’s…

In Georgia Senate race, Teresa Tomlinson is winning the endorsement battle bigly

(Originally Published March 10) By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman In the endorsement game, Raphael Warnock captured the biggest prize for Georgia Democrats early on, when Stacey Abrams immediately signaled her full support for his campaign to defeat Sen. Kelly Loeffler. There are, in all, twenty-one candidates in that Battle Royale. A runoff between the top two November vote-getters is a certainty, but with eight Democrats in the race, it’s possible that the top finisher from Team Blue won’t play on, even with Abrams’ support. Abrams—who’s being discussed as a VP candidate—will likely stay out of the state’s other Senate race, where seven Democrats are vying to unseat David Perdue. Only three of them are considered major contenders—that is, having substantial funding, paid staffs,…

Flipping Georgia: Democrat Teresa Tomlinson’s plan to beat David Perdue takes gumption

  By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman First of all, let’s not forget the possibilities here. Georgia’s status as a 2020 presidential battleground and its two Senate races make it arguably the most crucial state on the electoral map. Both seats are in play, and both incumbents are vulnerable. Kelly Loeffler goes deplorable early and often Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who has spent her short time in office pledging loyalty to all things Trump and ignoring evidence in the president’s impeachment trial, still doesn’t know if she’ll draw major GOP opposition in the November jungle primary. The fact that she furiously trying to colled MAGA creditss shows she’s scared. It’s working, though. She got a retweet from the president, althoughshe had to RT another senator tweeting…
