There are 413 days, 13.5 months and 59 weeks until Election Day in Georgia. The political trends suggest that if we can’t win together, we will definitely lose together. The recent recall votes in Colorado, the defeat of the presumed front-runners in the New York Democratic mayoral primary should be a sign to those of us in Georgia.
Perhaps it is time for Georgia Democrats and our sisters and brothers in other “red” states to face the music. Divided we lose. Disorganized we lose. Apologetic for our progressive platform we lose. Disingenuous we lose. Old school politics of the leaders dictating positions, strategies and arrogance we lose.
Now is the time to pull together, to debate with fervor but without angst and malice, to broaden the tent for many newcomers and new ideas, to sharpen our campaign skills, to be truth tellers, to target new voters and to welcome our regulars….. To offer a message of unity that mirrors our behavior and our plans.
