Dugan said he will also be campaigning “up until 6:59 p.m. on Tuesday.” “I think my chances are good, but I’m not so comfortable that I’ve stopped campaigning,” he said. “If I’m fortunate enough to win, that’s when the real work begins.”Did you catch that? A Republican having to campaign up til the very last minute against a Libertarian challenger? For his part Libertarian James Camp believes he's still the "dark horse" in the race.
“I have no illusions of winning, but I’m sure going to try,” Camp said Friday as he was traveling down Rome Street in Carrollton, making last-minute visits to business owners and their customers. “There needs to be some diversity in state government. We have to get away from the two-party ‘duopoly.’ People have no voice. It’s the party bosses who run things.”And how aggressively is he campaigning?
Camp, a Temple IT technician, was directing his final weekend campaigning toward reaching what he termed the “super voters,” those who cast ballots in every primary, general and special election and every runoff. “I’m asking them to come out and vote and ask their friends and family members to vote,” he said. “I’m telling them this election could come down to whether the Republicans will get a super majority in the Senate. With a super majority (two-thirds), they can pass any agenda they want and get it through without opposition.Editor's note - Of course, we libertarian Republicans would be peachy with a GOP super majority. Camp sounds like a great guy. Best of luck. But if you live in southwest Georgia, please vote for Republican Mike Dugan.
