Needles in a Haystack – Liberal Minds in North Georgia is a meetup group that gathers in North Atlanta. They sponsored a forum this past Sunday, March 12, at Andretti’s. All five Democratic candidates running for Tom Price’s 6th District spoke.
The event, moderated by Needles’ Gary Dichtenberg, was live-streamed and is archived. You can watch the video on their Facebook page or through YouTube and is posted below. Approximately 500 people attended. Channel 11 news also did a story about the event that appeared on their evening news.
From Needles in a Haystack’s Facebook page:
“A straw poll was conducted after the forum by audience members. The votes are nonbinding and indicate only the audience’s feelings at the moment following the forum. The results are approximately as follows.
Jon Ossoff: 74%
Richard Keatley: 10%
All others (Ragin Edwards, Ron Slotin, and Rebecca Quigg) including an “Undecided” option compose the final 16% of the vote
If no candidate receives 50% of the vote plus one vote in the jungle primary, the top two candidates with the most votes, regardless of party, will move on to a runoff to take place on June 20. Two of the three democratic candidates running to replace Judson Hill who vacated his seat in the 32nd State Senate district spoke briefly at the beginning of the forum.”
