Melvin is running unopposed for the Republican nomination and is a very strong candidate. He is also a firebrand on the stump. I've had to follow him on a few occasion. A tough task that's for sure!

He was also among the members of the Georgia State House to endorse Huckabee in '08

Quote:
We just got word that state Rep. Melvin Everson of Snellville, who in 2005 became the first black Republican since Reconstruction to be elected to the House, will run for state labor commissioner.

Given that the incumbent is Democrat Michael Thurmond, who is also African-American, Everson’s candidacy could make for some interesting dynamics.

When we last talked to him, Thurmond was mulling over whether to stay put or run for lieutenant governor, or governor. But don’t expect any news on that front until former Gov. Roy Barnes makes his decision about a comeback.

But if he runs for re-election, Thurmond can now expect enhanced opposition — given that House Republicans are likely to put their weight, and money, behind Everson, a former Snellville city councilman.

So Thurmond(D) is running for his 4th term. Last time I think he won with 57% of the vote. He will be difficult to dislodge.

Do you guys know of any good blogs or sites for local politics? The newspaper websites are not always easy to navigate.
