AlabamaElections Reversal: Zeb Little IS running for re-election

That sound you hear is a huge sigh of relief from Democrats in the state legislature now that State Sen Zeb Little has signaled that he will run for re-election.

Little's decision gives Democrats a boost in the upcoming legislative elections. Had he declined to seek re-election, Democrats would have had to defend Little's state senate and Neal Morrison's state house seat. While, they may have ultimately held both of these seats, Democrats and their allies would have needed to spend a considerable amount of money to do so. Now Democrats are able to spend that money protecting vulnerable incumbents and targeting Republican held seats.

Little's decision also keeps a lid on a leadership fight among the pro-Barron Democrats. A Little retirement would have upset the expected line of succession among the controlling Barron faction.

Of course, Little's decision to run for re-election comes after my post last week saying that he would not run. Obviously, I got the final result wrong. And for that I take full responsibility. I did have two members of the state legislature (one Dem, one GOP) and a local Cullman pol who told me that Little would hang it up. But I pulled the trigger on the story too early. It's my understanding that Little had decided to call it quits last week, but reconsidered over the weekend (with help from key Democrats and their allies). Little's decision came only after a careful balance of personal, professional, and political decision and I ended up on the wrong side of the Hamlet routine.

However, politics is a pretty fluid process and there certainly may be other times when my information doesn't pan out (or in this case isn't quite current). And while I can't guarantee accuracy 100% of the time, I will be straightforward and let you know what I know when I know it. And if I get something wrong (like now) I'll own up to it and then get back to work.

wow, now we can all sleep peacefully. the real issue is whether he will refuse to participate in Pac To Pac Transfers. If not, he is a thief like the rest of the legislature. I hope the Feds are watching closely this election season. They just cleaned up tennessee so maybe we can be so lucky this year.
