The Blogland wants to wish Berkeley County's State Senator Larry Grooms a Happy Birthday.
Working on his 1997 and 2000 Senate races were some of the most memorable campaign experiences and both were long-shots which produced late-night victories. The first race turned a heavily-Democratic seat into Republican hands and the second race was the contest which gave Republicans control of the State Senate.
I've always believed that many never appreciated just how costly, grueling and emotionally draining the 2000 re-election contest was or how much his family endured to help make history that year.
Maybe he didn't win the First District Congressional primary last night, but there's no mistaking that Larry gave it his all, as he always does, and no matter what, kept smiling and kept working until the last vote was cast. That's just what he does.
No matter what the bean counters tell you, Larry Grooms is always a winner.
