Hallelujah He's Confirmed!
Georgia State Senator David Adelman finally got confirmed as US Ambassador to Singapor according to Jim Tharpe over at the AJC's Gold Dome Live today. The big news for lovers of liberty in Georgia's 42nd Senate District is that the long awaited special election to pick his replacement can finally get underway. A quick review of the State Ethics Commission website revealed that the field of candidates remains at three as of today although rumors abound that as many as three more democrat candidates may take a shot at Senator Adelman's seat by the time qualifying ends.
The current field of candidates include Libertarian David Montané making his first bid for office, democrat Jason Carter who leads the field in fundraising and park cleaning and democrat Tom Stubbs rounding out the pack.
Who will win this So Special Election? Who knows as the 42nd district is aptly described as "where Berkley and Mayberry co-exist" by local blogger Dave Kell of inDECATUR. So far, Libertarian David Montané has put forth positions on the issues of Annexation, Public Transportation, the failed War on Drugs and Sunday Alcohol sales. Will his democrat opponents follow suit?
