What's Zeb Up To?

I've been told that State Senator Zeb Little (D-Cullman) has a "new announcement" planned this week in which he will lay out his future plans.

You'll remember that Little took a long look at running statewide (LG and AG) only to forgo such a bid in favor of re-election to his senate seat. However, now that Jim Folsom has still not publicly stated his plans regarding the Lieutenant Governor's race perhaps Little is giving a statewide bid a second thought.

The details of Little's "new announcement" have been hard to come by as he seems to be playing it close to the vest. It could be anything from announcing his retirement, to making a move for the President Pro Tem job, or moving on to another office.

Many times announcements such as this end up being much ado about nothing, but Little's announcement has the potential to shake up the Alabama political scene.

i hear from contacts in cullman that their was an article in the cullman times a couple on sundays ago that said in part that Little will retire and that State Rep.Neal Morrison will look at the senate race if he is not appointed rules chairman in the house. Sense then State House Majority Leader Ken Guin has been named Rules Chair so that may mean that Morrison will make the run if Little is out. This is all speculation at this point.

He's going to announce he won't run for re-election.

I got word from a friend of mine today who also said that Zeb was going to hang it up. That would move his senate seat into the toss up column and really open up the race for President Pro Tem in 2007. Also if Morrison does run for the senate seat, then his House seat all of a sudden becomes vulnerable to the GOP.


We'll see what Zeb has to say, but it looks like his decision could set off a row of political dominos.

If Morrison runs for Little's Senate seat then it will be a battle for Morrison's House seat. I hear that both parties are recruiting candidates. Another website claims possible Democrats include James Fields, Brad Williams, Tom Burleson and Keith Kugler. Possible Republicans include Steve Freman, Bill Floyd.

Does anyone know anything about these candidates experience or who would run strong?

I don't know much about the specific candidates, but I have looked at the 2002 election results from that district and I'd say it is a lean Republican district. That district went for Riley with about 56% of the vote in 2002. So that's not a perfect indicator, but it gives some sense of the partisan balance.

If the Morrison seat does open up, it will become an important race over night. Not counting the 31st (which the GOP should take easily in the special election), I'd say the Morrison seat either the 1st or 2nd best GOP target in 06, just ahead or behind of the open Tommy Carter seat.

And for the record, as I said earlier I had one source tell me that Zeb will retire. But later today I talked to a different source that says that Zeb hasn't made his mind up either way. So, until the word comes directly from Little, then your guess is as good as mine.

I am the Independent Nominee for the 06 Third District Congressional Election. I hope to have an election internet site soon, next to the one my Republican Opponent has here. At that time I will post my extensive political Election Platform, which I recently completed. When on Monday the fifth of December, The 9/11 Commission disclosed its Final Report assigning Congress an overall failing grade, especially Homeland security,I had to revise my Platform. My Republican Opponent is a member of The Congressional Homeland Security Committee,which supervises FEMA, the people who were in charge last August-September in New orleans, LA. I did not want my platform to fail to mention that interesting fact. What other useful news could appear? Maybe another Committee appointment for my able Opponent.
