    Expect a rehash of her days in the Log Cabin Republicans, which means she'll have to go even harder right against gays. Her Komen shit will all come out again, including how she had to resign because the organization backtracked on Planned Parenthood funding.

    She also had a big hand in Georgia's voter ID laws, which could come back to bite her with urban voters.

      Strong pro life position and attack on planned parenthood are probably a plus in this State.  Though I haven't seen any polls, the Voter ID law is probably popular here.

      Until people have to go and renew a license and have to go through the crap I just went through to prove my eligibility, I think Voter ID is a winner here.  

      I know, I know...You should have to live here. Obama got 17% in my home county.

        Voter ID can be used to energize the African American community, and the Planned Parenthood things can energize college students and socially moderate white women, which is important in a midterm where they are among the least likely to show up.

        Our best chance to win is by changing the electorate, and we have to play to unlikely voters to do that.
