May 17 and 18, 2013, State GOP Convention in Athens, GA

Tuesday, July 27, 2010

Thank you Eric Johnson voters and all GOP candidates.

First, thank you to every one who ran for office. Most people pay no attention. Some people pay attention and complain. Some people pay attention and work. Very few actually run for office. Congratulations to the winners – especially Gary Black for Agriculture Commissioner! I’m disappointed for many who ran and did not win this time but very thankful that I’ve heard not a word about fraud in any of the elections. A clean loss is much easier to deal with than a crooked loss (it’s been known to happen in Georgia history.)

Thank you to so many old and new, near and far, friends who joined me in supporting Eric Johnson for Governor. It became a razor thin race with a heartbreaking conclusion for Johnson supporters. Eric finished strong and ran a clean campaign. Statewide, he went from 2% to 55% name recognition – an expensive task which required a serious plan. Read Eric’s characteristically classy thank you and campaign wrap up.

Wondering what he’ll do next? According to the Savannah news, “Experts say Eric Johnson has a future in politics if he wants one.” Emory University political science professor Merle Black says “Johnson impressed me.  He really knows how to make a point and gain the attention of his audience.” My thoughts – wouldn’t any public policy foundation love to have someone like that?
