Trouble for Georgia Dems: Ray Endorses Sellier

The Houston County Buyer's Connection contains an article announcing that Robert Ray, retiring Democratic Incumbent from HD 136 just endorsed Republican Candidate, and neighbor, and friend Tony Sellier. Beth Perera is the Democrat in that race and a great candidate. Too bad that Ray abandoned his party on this one. I understand that Sellier initially planned to run as a democrat and changed his mind. More on this later, but it does not bode well for democrats chances of reclaiming the House.

I was very disappointed in Ray for endorsing Sellier. He could have stood aside and not endorsed anyone...but evidently he wants a Republican to win.

amy mentions she "understands" tony was intending to run as a dem. where did that info come from? a bit confused as i admit to have known him for years and wasn't aware he had considered the democratic ticket. interesting.

Actually, a number of different people had mentioned that to me, but it could be that they were hoping that he would make that choice (wishful thinking) or that folks had approached him in that regard. Anyway, I hear that he is a nice guy but don't know much more about him personally. You obviously do. It will be an interesting race.
