I’ve known for some time that as a Southern Jewish Democrat, that I was a fairly endangered species. I heard that following the Polar Bear, Southern Jewish Democrats are the next on the endangered list. That’s why it warms my little Texan heart to see someone like Josh Segall running hard for Alabama’s 3rd Congressional District. It’s rare to see a liberal Jewish Democrat running to win in the south, but Josh is determined to make it happen. The Politico has a terrific article on Segall detailing his plan to deliver for Alabama. And to boot, he’s only 29! As a Young Southern Jewish Democrat, I’m even more excited about Josh’s run for Congress. Who knows? If he wins, maybe I’ll give running for Congress a shot. It couldn’t be much harder to win in Texas than it is winning in Alabama!
