''Unity Caucus to vet candidates for State Dem Party Chair''

"The State Democratic Party is getting a new Chair. At this time, the known candidates are:

Phil Talmadge

Under the leadership of Luis Moscoso, State Party Secretary, a Unity Caucus has formed and will sponsor a January 8 forum for the candidates. The following Caucuses are involved.

African American

Asian Pacific American

Disability Caucus

Fed. of Democratic Women

Hispanic/Latino Caucus

It's an inspired move -- for a more accountable and relevant State Democratic Party. Thank you Luis!-from Washblog.

Update: Geov Parrish tells me: "Pelz has withdrawn his name from consideration."
