    think Marshall could carry the state?  Let's find someone more acceptable to democrats.  This state with all of the hispanic, asians, blacks and progressives (yes we do exist here) are gaining.    In '10 when we ran our former governor - it wasn't good enough - we need new blood.   We need to move forward - not backwards.   Dems here have to do a better job of finding new good candidates and then backing them with all the help they can.  in georgia the party has a poor record of helping new people - they usually only help incumbents.

    In Georgia don't give money to the party - give it directly to the candidate.  The party takes care of themselves and incumbents.  Give directly to the candidate.

      The old guard did not prepare their successors. I think Democrats nationally understand now that skipping cycles that end in 0 can leave a decade-long hangover.

      Surely there are candidates to be found in the metro area and other parts of the state?
