While there is a lot of focus on races with candidates challenging incumbents, we must not forget about some of the open seats.  In addition to knocking off incumbents, electing dedicated conservatives from open seats who are committed to changing leadership will help up us win back the party for the grassroots.  One of those candidates is Barry Loudermilk, running in the open House seat in Georgia’s 11th District to replace Rep. Phil Gingrey.  With less than four weeks less to the primaries in Georgia, we have some good news to report: Loudermilk is leading in the latest poll.

Here are the topline results:

Loudermilk 25%

Barr 23 %

Pridemore 11%

Lindsey 8%

It is important to point out that Barr was a high-profile member of Congress for many years and enjoys a much higher level of name ID than Loudermilk.  Barr has also spent twice as much as Loudermilk on campaign expenditures.  Yet, Loudermilk’s bold stance for both fiscal and social conservatism is resonating. His commitment to oppose leadership is ringing clear throughout the district.  Barr, on the other hand, is very close with John Boehner and will be a rubber stamp for the status quo.

Let’s help Barry finish strong in the final weeks so he can be well positioned to win the runoff later this summer.
