Jimmy Higdon’s phones rang almost constantly for days after his victory in the Dec. 8 special election to fill the 14th District state senate seat.
His win over Democrat Jodie Haydon was even mentioned in The Wall Street Journal and by talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. Higdon, a Republican, was amused by the attention his victory received, but he said he wasn’t going to try to analyze what his win might mean.
“I’ll let the experts pick it apart and digest it,” he said. “I’ve got enough to do getting ready to be a senator.”
