On June 10th, the Blue Dogs, a 49-member coalition of conservative Democrats in Congress, announced its endorsement of Parker Griffith in Alabama’s 5th Congressional District. In making this significant endorsement, Rep. Mike Ross, (D-AR) commented:
We believe he will join us in putting an end to the partisan bickering in Washington and pushing through commonsense fiscal policies and restoring accountability to our government.
Griffith, who is serving his first term in the state Senate, is running to replace Rep. Bud Cramer, D-Huntsville, who is retiring. His Republican opponent will be determined by a primary runoff on the 15th of this month. Rep. Cramer, in assessing the race, told reporters in Huntsville:
It appears that the Democrats have an excellent chance of retaining the seat. I think Parker Griffith has a very good chance of bonding with the people of the 5th District … where party label is not as important.
I believe Democrats will retain the Cramer seat. Early polling indicates that Senator Griffith will draw from Democrats, Independents and Republicans and win by a comfortable margin. He is considered to be very much like the man he is seeking to replace and that’s important.
