Amy Morton of Macon announces: "I'm voting for Jane Kidd for DPG Chair."

From Amy Morton's blog Georgia Women Vote!:

I'm voting for Jane Kidd for DPG Chair. Jane can go from boardrooms in Buckhead to the Rotary Club in Bainbridge, be welcome, be comfortable and make people feel great about being a Democrat. In addition, Jane can, without a doubt, raise the cash required to fund a winning strategy.

For Georgia Democrats, Jane offers a unique combination of leadership experience, political acumen and deep roots. From personal experience, Jane knows what candidates need and what it takes to win. She is making a 159 County Strategy for candidate recruitment a top priority, and she understands that local elected Democrats and local Democratic organizations are our greatest under-developed resource. She is committed to making Republicans earn every vote in every race, and she knows that supporting County Parties so that they can be more effective in electing Democrats is key.

We don't have to hope that Jane can raise money, a quick scan of her campaign disclosures reveals that she can indeed. Plus, her own volunteer-rich campaigns show a strong commitment to good grassroots organizing. For the Democratic Party of Georgia to be a success, it has to be more than an organizational chart, it has to become a viable force, promoting Democrats and Democratic candidates in Georgia. Jane has the skills and experience to bring life to the party. You can learn more about Jane and her vision for the party by checking out her website. Plus, Jane blogs!

raising money for a competitive senate seat and raising money for a state party are two different things...jane's country club politics ain't gonna work outside of her plush athens neighborhood...and her lobbyist-funded campaign account will do her no good in the chair seat

Thanks for cross-posting this, Sid. Jane brings a powerful combination of contacts, experience and credibility to the table. I personally appreciate every person who has offered themselves for this full-time, volunteer job.

Great. By all means, let's have Democrats whacking on Democrats. I'm sure the Republicans are licking their chops over a divisive DPG race.

I like Jane, fine. You like someone else (wonder who?), and that's fine too. But, we've got to elect a chairman, and still be standing up at the end of the day, so maybe keep the hatchet-man (or hatchet-woman) shenanigans behind closed doors.

Anything else and you're just weakening whoever does win on January 27th.
