Terry Holley

From the Georgia Politics Unfiltered blog:

"Also, Charlie Norwood has a Democratic challenger. His name is Terry Holley. I don't know much about Terry Holley except that he's the current Chairman of the 9th Congressional District for the Democratic Party of Georgia."

And that is now all that I know about him. Anyone with more info, please share.

Terry Holley was until recently the Chairman of the Democratic Party in Columbia County. He has run for the State House twice in Columbia County-based districts.

In 2000, he ran for the State House against Rep. Bill Jackson (R-Appling). At that time, the district included the northern (non-suburban) part of Columbia County and all of nearby McDuffie County.

2002 v. Jackson:
Jackson 12,382 (71.3%)
Holley 4,996 (28.7%)

In 2002, he ran for the State House against Rep. Barry Fleming (R-Harlem). The district at that time was solely in Columbia County, including areas below I-20, like Grovetown and Harlem and reaching above the interstate to take in some of the country-clubby areas around Evans. But of the two Col Co. districts, this one was/is the more hospitable to Democrats (which in Columbia County means Democrats actually win one of the thirty precincts in the district).

2002 v. Fleming:
Fleming 9,280 (70.5%)
Holley 3,882 (29.5%)

Great, so we get a candidate with some real experience getting his pants beat off. Our party leadership was unable to recruit a candidate ... or unwilling?

from the way i hear it, party leadership was unable to recruit another candidate...mainly b/c they didnt want to waste money on this race. and it would be a waste.

Maybe if more people would stop whining and instead work to help Mr. Holley then it would not be such a waste. It's easy to sit on these blogs and waste time talking big but I challenge you to go out and help him and send him a donation. This race is winable if enough people realize that Norwood is just in it for himself and that it spends precious little time in Georgia these days.

I just happen to have recorded a song called "Terry and Holly" that I actually wrote a long time ago. I wonder if Terry Holley would pay me to adapt it for his campaign? I won't do it on any kind of volunteer basis.

you won't find anybody more partisan or more disgusted with Norwood but, this race is not, repeat, not winnable for Holley. I wish it were but it isn't.

I won't be wasting any time or money on this one.

I guess it would have to start with Holley being out there and asking for them ...

It's too late to whine now. Terry Holley isn't who you would want anyway. Ask anyone who really knows him. He can't even succesfully run his own business, much less a political office. His credit is ruined, he couldn't even get a loan from his own family, so I wouldn't waste a penny on a lost cause.
