Congressman Taking Donors on Birdie Hunt

Democrats like to suggest that Rep. Terry Everett (R) could be a candidate for retirement in 2008, when he will be 71 years old. But Everett does not appear to be ready to step off the political stage just yet.

On Sunday and Monday, Everett and his supporters will be hunting birdies — though they’ll be wielding golf clubs, not shotguns. The Congressman will host a two-day fundraiser at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail in Prattville, with ticket prices ranging from $500 to $3,000 for political action committees willing to sponsor specific holes.

Democrats believe they can make the eight-term Congressman’s 2nd district competitive in an open-seat scenario. Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright (D) is among those mentioned as a possible contender.
