Ralph Reed Concedes Defeat in Georgia Primary
Posted on Jul 18, 2006
Unable to distance himself from scandal-tarred lobbyist Jack Abramoff, Reed conceded defeat in Georgia’s Republican race for lieutenant governor.
C-e-e-e-e-e-e-l-e-brate good times, come on!
Former Christian Coalition leader Ralph Reed, unable to overcome his ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff, conceded defeat Tuesday in Georgia’s Republican race for lieutenant governor.
In Alabama, George Wallace Jr. ? son of the legendary Alabama governor and presidential candidate ? lost his bid for the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor to Luther Strange, a first-time candidate.
Reed was making his first bid for elective office after working for years as a behind-the-scenes campaign strategist and leading the Christian Coalition and the state Republican Party.
