And what a surprise!

The group  is an exclusive club of 5 white Republicans.

Wonder what they have to say about this situation.

And I suspect they continue to ignore observations such as these shared in the New York Times article.

“Nobody’s ever seen it this wet this long.”  Randy Ellis, a Georgia farmer.

“This is something that has never been on our radar"  Duke Lane Jr., Georgia peach and pecan grower.
