District 33 Convention to select new Senate nominee

WTL reports that The Shelby County Democratic Party will hold a Convention consisting of ExecCom members who represent House districts that have at least one precinct in District 33. These districts are 83-87, 90-92, and 95, and their reps will decide who will represent the party on the November ballot.

This will take place on September 14 at Cummings Street Baptist Church, 794 East Raines Road, at 7 PM. 1st Vice Chair Cherry Davis will serve as Co-Chair of this special convention.

Given that this is a HEAVILY Democratic district, the nominee is more than likely going to be the next Senator, so the lobbying will hot and heavy. Steve Webster has some support, but he is hardly a shoo-in. This could get interesting, so to quote Bette Davis in ALL ABOUT EVE, "Fasten your seat belts, it's going to be a bumpy night!"
