  1. Mr. Gillum, Soros money can only propel the mediocre so far. Ask Jon Ossof. In fact, take a cue from his campaign and have Nancy Pelosi talk you up, that seems to go over well.

  2. Wait until he starts hitting the parts of the State were the media is firmly behind Graham, and considers him a hick from the sticks (even if he does worship at the Temple of Political Correctness).

  3. Yet another reason to question his commitment to the truth. Playing loose with the truth is the same as lying.

  4. Dear Andy:
    The state media are on a different level than the local rag.
    You can’t put them in your pocket.
