The Daily Journal is reporting that long-time Democratic legislator Steve Holland (better known as Billy McCoy’s puppy) has qualified to run for the open First District seat.
This is interesting. The special election (as well as the primary) will be held in March (probably). The winner of the special election will have the upper hand headed into the November general election. Holland has a powerful seat in the legislature, whose 2008 session has just begun and runs through the end of March. Since Holland will be in Jackson that time, how is he going to campaign and run for an office while he to perform his full-time day job?
Is he planning on giving up his current seat- I wouldn’t think so.
