Yes, there is a statewide runoff on the Democratic side and it's an important one: Giles Perkins vs. James Anderson for Attorney General. Perkins goes into the runoff with the endorsement of the Alabama New South Coalition (who previously endorsed third place finisher Michel Nicrosi.) which he says can be a game changer.
We can win. I write to ask you to help me raise the money I need for the runoff, 4 weeks from today. ANY amount is helpful. Please go to www.perkinsforalabama.com to donate. I thank you for your support.
Perkins needs to hold his own voters and pick up those who supported Nicrosi on June 1 — of which I am one. More important, he needs to get voters to participate in the Democratic primary, on July 13 instead of meddling in the Republican runoff. And yes, he does need resources to pull this off, so please send him a contribution — any amount will be helpful.
Although he was Executive Director of the Alabama Democratic Party back in 1998, Giles Perkins is definitely positioned as an outsider this year — which I view as a good thing. The day after the primary the ADP put out a press release noting (emphasis mine) that “James Anderson and Giles Perkins may possible face off once more for the nomination in a July 13 run-off election” which I took to mean “we really need Perkins to just get the hell out of the way and give Anderson a clear field.” Didn't happen, which is how the Democratic process is supposed to work.
