Early commercials are like yeast

We’re still a little more than 10 months away from the general election, and the campaigning, of a sort, has begun.

We’re starting to see commercials for 12th District Congressional incumbent John Barrow. Now, they don’t specifically mention voting for him or anything about the election, but the television spots are touting the fourth-term legislator’s attributes.

His latest campaign disclosure form, dated Sept. 30, before the TV spots began running, listed more than $1 million on hand for his re-election bid.

Augusta businessman Rick Allen, who lost in the Republican primary runoff to former state lawmaker Lee Anderson, reported a little under $100,000 on hand for his Sept. 30 campaign disclosure report. He’s been on the campaign trail again this time around, and his campaign Web site is active and up-to-date.

John Stone, who lost to Barrow in 2008 by a 2-to-1 margin, also has filed a campaign disclosure report for Sept. 30.

Jeff Chapman, who is running for the 1st District seat, was at the Effingham Chambers’ Eggs and Issues breakfast, as was Buddy Carter. Chapman was a member of the state Senate and is now in the state House. Carter was in the state House and is now in the state Senate. The Effingham TEA Party hosted several congressional candidates at its November meeting.
