Now that Nora Walcott has stepped down as executive director of the Greene County Democrats, talk of her replacement is making rounds with party insiders.
Walcott managed the 2004 campaign of Sara Lampe, now running for reelection in the Missouri House of Representatives. Two years ago, Lampe whipped up on a Democratic challenger named Matthew Patterson.
So who's the rumored front-runner for Walcott's old job? None other than Matthew Patterson. He's far from a consensus candidate, and several people say party leaders haven't decided how to structure the executive director's job. But his name's the strongest one in the pipeline.
Speaking of politics: David Catanese has a couple new posts up at the KY-3 political blog about the failure of Democrats to field a strong challenger against Rep. Roy Blunt, and the need for Democrats to challenge Republicans in all races. Worth your reading time.
