Who's your choice for Mayor in 2015?

It's the smart move

and Tessio was always smarter.

Oops, sorry, AMC had a Godfather I, II and III marathon all weekend!

Props to Terry Roland for making the smart choice and pulling his name out of the hat for the interim District 29 Senate position. While it will piss off the local Gooper braintrust, it will no doubt save them from themselves and not infuriate the African-American community quite as much as it would have had he been appointed to temporarily fill the seat.

Of course, WTL raising hell at his blog had NOTHING to do with this, I'm sure!

FYI LWC, the only reason Roland withdrew his name was because Bruce Thompson wasn't going to vote for him. When Thompson made this known, then Roland knew he didn't have the votes and bowed out. No props for that...except to Thompson.

And props to Thompson for exactly that.

Wait! Did I just prop a Republican? I better watch it, or I'll ruin my rep.

Your rep is intact, or else mine is also in trouble, I think this was a smart move.

Ophelia doesn't have the votes on the Commission either. ... Will she be gracious enough to bow out too or keep making a fool of herself?

I wasn't aware that she was trying for the interim appointment; my understanding is that a) she is trying to get the ouster overturned and b) she is campaigning for re-election.

I can't help but note that both she AND Terry Roland have primary opposition this time.

It will be interesting to see how many votes Steve Haley gets in the primary..

Ophelia doesn't need the appointment either. This doesn't need to be any more partisan and rancorous than it always is.

I think Bailey said he would nominate Ophelia ... but that was before Roland bowed out. Actually, I think the other state senators would be willing to handle anything for the people of 29 ... they should just let it be until November ... or appoint Mongo!

They should leave it alone but they can't. The law requires them to appoint someone for the district.
