For the past few weeks I have had the pleasure of working with Michael Frisbee as his Communications/Social Networking director. Mr. Frisbee is running as a New Liberty Democrat against a Democratic Incumbent. The campaign needs $5200 to make the Democratic Primary Ballot for the July 20th Primary.

Mr. Frisbee has been actively involved with the 10th Amendment Events recently attending the 10th Amendment Summit with Ray McBerry and Adam Kokesh held in late February in Georgia.

Any Donations help would be greatly appreciated his websight is http://www.frisbee2010.com/ while there you can also sign up for the weekly newsletter "The Frisbee Report"

Please Note: Mr. Frisbee has been endorsed by liberty-candidates.org

Why try to primary the incumbent? That's a tough road. He should run as a Republican, because that primary field is WEAK. The current GOP candidates are Sonja Sleeper, an also-ran nobody who is going nowhere, and Deborah Honeycutt, a doctor who was twice the nominee and twice a loser.

The District is Democratic.....take a look at the General Election Results.

in 2008 the current Rep. garnered 205,919 votes to the 92,320 of the Republican. http://www.cqpolitics.com/wmspage.cfm?docID=district-GA-13

Running as a Republican as you can see would not be smart.

Also note what Honeycutt spent almost $4 million more than the Incumbent and still lost 2-1

I agree with you. This isn't an easy district in general. But if the only viable strategy, in your opinion, is to primary an incumbent like Scott, your candidate is best off running for some other office. Scott is well funded and popular among Democrats.

Yes, typically this is not a district that a republican can win. But this is going to be a huge Republican year, and a mid-term. If your guy can make it to the general, he can swing libertarian on social stuff and steal the youth vote and some leftie votes right out from under Scott.

Scott is however not popular among his constituents who consider themselves 67% Conservative.

Maybe it's worth it. But if his opponent is painted as the anti-tax, anti-health care, pro-gun guy, the electorate will go for the devil they know.

When the Dem is considered too conservative, it's possible to position a Republican in a liberal fashion and steal Dem base votes, which is what you need.

The problem with your strategy is this......the District already has a liberal Democrat that they dont want.....a Moderate Republican would be just as bad.

I agree with Mike's strategy. The heavy anti-incumbent vibe across the electorate will have alot of Dems voting for the new refreshing D vs. the careerist D at the polls in July.
