Dem super PAC head: ‘Some listening’ needed in Ga. before investing

The head of the pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC that’s positioning itself at the center of the Donald Trump opposition efforts suggested big-money Democratic groups such as his are taking a wait-and-see approach before making any big investments in Georgia.

Here’s what Guy Cecil, head of Priorities USA, said on Twitter when asked about the millions of dollars some Democrats such as Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed say is needed to flip Georgia blue:

Georgia Democrats are licking their wounds after a disappointing election that saw their candidates for president and U.S. Senate muster only 46 percent and 41 percent of the vote, respectively.

The Clinton campaign made only a modest investment in Georgia ahead of the election. Cecil’s group sunk seven-figures into advertisements on television and African-American-oriented radio stations in the Peach State in the weeks ahead of the election.

Obama and Hillary rendered the Democratic party obsolete. Now the Democrats who voted for them are doing the same for themselves.

of course there will be a "resistance" to returning America to the land of the free and home of the brave.. the "left" can not abide freedom in any form for the "people".. recent events have educated me to the fact, yes FACT that the democrat party is undemocratic and wishes only to obtain and retain power to fundamentally remake the USA into a socialist progressive nation full of drones voting the power elites into a soft cushy powerful position protected by men with guns..

Lets just let the conservatives rule the day. Conservative values are good for everyone (99%) anyway. The Dems lost their way when they started listening to the 1% and forgot the 99%.

I always vote for the best candidate, despite if the candidate is a Republican or Democrat. However, I do hope Dems learn a lesson for selecting the wrong choice and not listening to the people for the past several years.

Larry Clark the KKK was founded in the 1860's, by the then Democratic Party, however in the 1960's the platforms of the two parties reversed, making the ideals of the Democratic Party of the 1860's the ideals of the Republican Party which are still consistent with the present day Republican Party. To put it simply, in the 1960's, the Democratic Party who founded the KKK, became the Republican Party. Same people, different banner. Gotta love being married to a history major.
