Reports of Her Demise are Greatly Exaggerated...

Last night, Georgia's WIN List supporters and candidates heard from two of the classiest women in Georgia politics: Cathy Cox and Shirley Franklin. While Cathy was unable to attend the event, she sent a letter to be read as Georgia's WIN List hosted our endorsed candidates and supporters at the home of Melita Easters. Her words were encouraging and forward focused, especially to all of us who are committed to electing Democrats, and in particular Democratic women, in Georgia. It was great to hear from her.

This was just one of the highlights of a fabulous evening. Several of our endorsed candidates who have already won their elections were there and provided the inspiration we needed to keep raising the "dough" to help our three statewide candidates and our remaining senate and house candidates WIN in November. Nothing is quite as inspiring as success!

On that note, Stacey Godfrey, chair of our candidate committee, announced that fifteen of the twenty women we endorsed, who had competition in the primary, won their races. That is an astounding success rate of 75%. Mayor Franklin's remarks to the group of a hundred or more inspired us all to do what we need to do to get these great women elected! As always, she made us all proud. It was such a pleasure to have her there. What a class act.
