Tin Shop Tartan - Randolph County Alabama's Own Snarky and Surly Scot Gets All Native

Blogging from the suburbs of the Tin Shop community, Captain Plaid brings Progressivism, and a share of Quixotic angst, to the ridges and hollows of Randolph County, Alabama.

Education, environment, economy, entertainment, engagement ... Trust the Tartan!

Gerald Dial says "Right now there is no plan to ..."

AP as served up by The Tuscaloosa News gives us "GOP chairman says no plan to switch Senate candidates" yet as Danny at Doc's points out the Code of Alabama, 1975, as amended, Section 17-7-1 (c) reads as follows:
... The probate judge is prohibited from causing to be printed on the ballot the name of any independent candidate who was a candidate in the primary election of that year and the name of any nominee of a political party who was a candidate for the nomination of a different political party in the primary election of that year.
Danny also offers up an unsourced understanding that the GOP had not recruited Jim Ingram. Why bother when they had Dino? Whatever else happens, Dino's 32 years up on Goat Hill are up. Peace ... or War!
