Hecht, Lotson, Martin, Miles: Who is Favored for Lt. Gov.?

Cox and Taylor have filled the Georgia political headlines lately, but other races that deserve our attention have been well below the radar. Here's your chance to weigh in. Who do you think is favored in the race for the democratic nomination for Lt. Governor of Georgia? Why do you think so?

Based on $$ and organization, I think Hecht might have the edge at this point, but that's very much a Middle Georgia perspective. What does this race look like inside the donut?

Steen Miles is from DeKalb. What sort of factor will she be in this race? Will there be a run-off? If so, who will be in it.

And the last big question: Which one, if any, can beat Ralph Reed?

Please post your predictions. We'll call this an informal "poll."

Greg Hecht has been busy in Middle Georgia. He has a field team here and has been to the region on numerous occasions. In fact, he was here on Friday hosting a "free" fish fry at Central City Park. I understand that the weather may have impacted attendance. Jim Martin has been here as well, but I don't know whether he has a ground team in place. He is having a fundraiser here on the 15th. I hear that Jim has a fairly active organization in Atlanta. I have also seen Steen Miles at one event, The Viola Ross Napier Celebration.

Amy, I'm ashamed to say that I'm not even close to making a decision on this race of the SoS race. I'm going to spend more time this week looking at all of the candidates in both races.

At least I don't have to worry about making decisions about any local or county races. They're almost all Republican!:-( There's always so much to do in a big primary season!!
