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…

Recuse yourselves! Teresa Tomlinson calls on Perdue, Loeffler to step back from impeachment case they’ve prejudged

  By Jonathan Grant @Brambleman As a lawyer, Teresa Tomlinson takes the Constitution seriously, and she doesn’t shy away from the impeachment debate. In a recent interview in her Columbus campaign office, she talked about the Founding Fathers, and how they set up the impeachment process as a safeguard against tyranny. She’s even tweeted out a Twitter treatise on Federalist Paper 66. She doesn’t want to see it as a political process, but as a Constitutional remedy to bad actors and demagogues in the White House. But it’s hard, if not impossible, to take the politics out of politics, as the old saying goes. In June, she said that House Democrats had a “duty” to begin impeachment hearings against Trump, regardless of…

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. DONATE! 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…
