Anyone watching this race? Sanford bishop has held the seat for since 1993. He does whatever washington tells him to.

Looks like it could possibly flip.

I will be very surprised if Bishop is unseated. He goes to bat for the white farmers in this district. He gets them lots of subsidies.

Add that to the black vote and he has a lot of support.

Ok, I think I have narrowed down the choices to Jeremy Hunt or Chris West.

West is a lawyer from Thomasville.

Hunt is a West Point grad and former Army Officer. He has connections with the Heritage Foundation.

Both seem like capable conservatives.

Both profess to be practicing Christians.

Any thoughts? Primary is in two days.

Only problem I have with hunt is he isnt from that district. Relocated from atl right before election.

I did early voting and voted for rich Robertson.

Thank you for the response. I will prayerfully consider Robertson.

I voted for West in the primary. There is a run off June 21 between West and Hunt.

Both Hunt and West say all the right words. Both are pro gun, pro life Christians.

Hunt is a black conservative, so he has the race advantage in this district. He is a West Point grad, former Army Captain.

Like you said, he just moved here (I think he lives in Columbus area) last February.

West is a hometown boy, Thomasville area. He is a lawyer and a member of the National Guard.

I personally think either one would be an improvement over Bishop!

A fish out of my pond would be an improvement over sanford. Sanford just rubber stamps whatever the democrats want.

And yet, there is a theory down here that Hunt has a better chance of beating Bishop that West does.

Still think I'll vote for West.
