As you have undoubtedly noticed, if any of you are even still checking, we don't post so much around here these days. As was alluded to in previous posts, both AthPo eds. are in busy transitional phases in their lives/careers. It's not clear at this point where AthPo is headed. We are considering getting some editorial assistance; however elimination, or at least an extended hiatus, of the blog is also a possibility. If that ends up being the case, I want to extend a hearty thanks to all who have contributed from all ends of the political spectrum, and I encourage everyone to continue to read and contribute to our linked blogs (as will we as time permits). Here's a few tidbits to tide you over if you're still jonesin' for local politic news:
The Solicitor's race is heating up, with several former prosecutor's lining up as possible challengers, including my personal favorite Bill Overend;
The filing deadline approaches rapidly, with still no definite word on where Jane Kidd will run;
Mac Rawson will challengeRalph Hudgens for his State Senate seat.
