Topic: "To Arms, To Arms"
John Oxendine, the Insurance Commissioner for the State of Georgia announced today that he was withdrawing from the race for Lieutenant Governor. Two candidates remain on the Republican side; one of whom is a Mr. Cagle, supported by many in the banking community. The other candidate is Ralph Reed. There is an announced Democrat, but his name is not even familiar to Frodo, and I read this stuff.
Georgia is an open primary State, so it would have been possible for every voter with an IQ greater than their age to vote in the Republican Primary and cast a vote against Reed. This is, quite obviously, a political deal for Oxendine. "You don't run against Ralph, and the Party faithful will support you for some other plum in the near future."
There will be deals galore to elevate Reed to the lone runner spot, figuring that an anonymous Democrat in a "Red" State would be no challenge. This is a threat to freedom. Frodo is open to the suggestions of the wise and the wonderful. How do we head off the election of one who is so evil?
