Scratch One Democratic Challenger to Parker Griffith


I noted yesterday that Parker Griffith’s Alabama district was pretty much destined to frustrate Democrats, with the most likely possibilities being the reelection of the new switched Republican, the election of a new veteran Republican, or the election of a Democrat determined to represent a group of conservative voters, and certain to give Nancy Pelosi fits.

That frustration starts early today, as a Democratic gubernatorial candidate has chosen not to switch to this seat.
