JeffCo GOP Straw Poll Results

The Jefferson County GOP held a fundraiser Saturday night that included a straw poll for various 2006 primaries.

A reader emailed me the results from the straw poll.

Governor:
Riley: 153
Moore: 70

Lt. Gov :
Wallace: 107
Strange: 60
Brooks: 35

Also, State Reps. Jim Carns and Bobby Humphryes defeated incumbent Jefferson County Commissioners Gary White and Mary Buckelew, respectively by approximately 100 votes each. These two county commission races seemed likely to pit Republicans against each other, but if this vote is any sign of things to come then the incumbents might not have much support left.

Among the attendees were Roy Moore, Patsy Riley, Mo Brooks, Glen Murdock and Perry Hooper, Jr. Also, I am told the Riley campaign purchased 50 tickets and presumably dispersed them among supporters.

There don't seem to be any big surprises here and even if there were it would be too reactionary to draw any conclusions from such a small sample. But though the JeffCo straw poll isn't significant enough to warrant much analysis, it is (I believe) the first public vote of the campaign and thus a symbolic start to what promises to be an intriguing political season.

I think there is a big suprise. It is that strang and brooks support together is almost that of Wallace Jr. I think Wallace may have bigger problems than he thinks.

Brooks was there and Strange Luther had the votes of the Riley people who bought 50 tickets. Wallace will swamp his opponents. Brooks is a nice guy and a fine Republican. Strange Luther cannot sell to the average Alabamian.

Roy Moore's showing was encouraging. These events are always packed with party insiders-- who tend to be Rockefeller Republicans. A Moore victory will not come through Jefferson County Republicans...
