Long day for the press.
April 28, 2002
It was a long day yesterday for the press. During a break I ran into Dan Hoover of the Greenville News. He (along with everyone else) wasn't real excited about all the delays.
It must have been a long day because the last paragraph of Mr. Hoover's Sunday article reads, "Deb Sofield, a Greenville City Council member running for comptroller general, handed out plastic bags with mini-candy bars. Secretary of State Jim Hodges' table dispensed apples to arriving delegates."
Jim Hodges' was at the GOP State Convention? Oh, and he is the Secretary of State?
Don't worry Mr. Hoover. We understand. We were there as well.

Ashley Smith, the Republican Party's new third vice chair also pointed out that Lee Bandy let everyone know that Katon "Dawkins" won the chairman's race.
