Election roundup

Just a few tidbits Ive heard while Ive been out and about as of late. The recently defeated Cullman County, Al Commissioner Doug Williams(R) has gone back to work full time at his family's funeral home business. Ive heard his name mentioned as a possible challenger to Cullman County Commission Chairman James Graves(R) in 2012 so we may not have seen the last of him in the political world. Up in Chester County, Tn. Patricia Jones(R) decided against a court challenge in her race against Chester County car dealer Dwain Seaton(I) for the County Mayor's post. She ended up losing by just three votes. Hmm Shelby County, Tn democrats should learn a lesson from Patricia and drop this nonsense their spewing. An interesting development in Mississippi this week. The state democrat chairman Jaime Franks went to court to sue the school superintendent in Tupelo, Ms. The details of the lawsuit are sheer nonsense. What this is really about is that Mr Franks can't get over the fact that his wife left him for the good old school superintendent and this has him all upset. Longtime democrat state Senator Jim Preuitt who switched to the GOP a few months ago abruptly ended his reelection campaign this week in Talladega, Al. No reason was given for the withdrawal although age and other personal factors such as the very public loss of his grandson probably weighed heavily on him the last few years. Thats all I have for now.....
