Don't hate me because Im beautiful?!?
I heard this week that the 2006 GOP nominee for Cullman County, Al. Probate Judge, Bridgette Reeling will seek that position again next year. Current incumbent Probate Judge Leah Lust(D) is one of only two democrats left in elected office in Cullman County after the GOP landslides in 2008 and 2010. So Mrs. Reeling will certainly have a better chance this time around than she did five years ago. But one problem that Mrs Reeling had in '06 was overcoming the perception among "some of the conservative voters" that she came across to some folks as a ditzy beauty pageant blond. I'll be curious to see how she overcomes that this time around. I met her six years ago and while she is an attractive lady. She certainly didn't strike me as being the proverbial "dumb blond". But that perception was rampant back in '06 especially among a lot of the Roy Moore supporters who were very motivated and out in full force that year in Cullman(which was one of his strongest counties).
