Looking for a candidate, I went to Brookwood for brunch ...
With less than a full-day’s notice, more than 2,000 people turned out Sunday at Brookwood High in Snellville for a Pancake Brunch with Republican Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney. Some came out of support; some came for free pancakes; and yet others came seeking a candidate they could get behind before the Super Tuesday election. Though I was back among the press with some of the big names, I confess, I was there with hopes of finding a President. I saw and spoke with several people that I felt sure shared some of my political ideaologies and hopes; Republicans from many paths in life - of differing ages, vastly different backgrounds and differing religious philosophies. To be honest, I was a bit surprised to see some of these people …

Presidential hopeful Rick Santorum pleaded his case for the Republican nomination by promising to get the country back to its moral founding.
Georgia was certainly on presidential hopeful Rick Santorum’s mind as he spoke at First Redeemer Church in Cumming Sunday evening. Lori Vance, who has worked closely with Santorum on the Senate floor to pass a partial birth abortion ban, was among those who arrived hours before the church doors opened. She drove five hours from Tennessee “just to support Rick” and proudly displayed a picture of her and Santorum around her neck. Young Voters Travel Far to Hear Santorum Speak Twenty-three-year-old Kevin Zurrica from Macon believes most people his age aren’t interested in the political process. But he hopes that Santorum will snag the nomination and win the hearts of America’s youth. According to Zurrica, America’s young voters are the key to…

Forsyth Commissioner Jim Boff was glad to hear Gingrich comments about using American resources to stop depending on other sources for oil.
Patch caught up with Forsyth County Commission Chairman Jim Boff after Newt Gingrich spoke to the county's Republican party, and he was pleased to hear the presidential hopeful's comments about energy independence. "I loved what Newt had to say, most especially for me about trying to become energy independent through use of shale oil and also new oil reserves found in North Dakota," Boff said. Asked if he thought the country could return to gas prices of $2.50 a gallon or lower, which Gingrich said could happen if he was president, Boff said, "If he says it, I believe it. I can't independently establish the truth in that. But even if that's not necessarily the case, I think the fact that we won't have to depend on what the rest of the …
