citius, altius, fortius
We really want Saxby out of there. Jesus, I don't even know what to say. It remains to be seen if the right votes will be out tomorrow -- Martin benefited the first time around from being on the ballot at the same time as Obama.
yeah, we need an obama-level turnout for it to be even close, i think.
good politico article on today's race: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1208/16124.htmllet's go dekalb county!
I have spent the past week in GA. The money/political celebs that are pouring into the Chambliss campaign are substantial. I think the nat'l GOP is crazy worried about this one.During the Georgia/GA-Tech game, I would say the ads were 4:1 Chambliss (mostly paid for by nat'l GOP and the US Chamber of Commerce), and extremely critical of Mertin. Did ya'll know he supports selling drugs near schools, for instance?I think it would take a minor miracle to win this seat.I think the biggest dick in the senate stays by 7+ points. Jason
Dekalb County voted pro-Obama by a huge margin.
well, so much for that. - p
It wasn't even close. They're estimating that only about 20% of voters actually voted.
Now the question for me is why Obama didn't campaign here again for Martin. It would have helped a lot with the vote here.
Yeah, so much for that. There didn't seem to be as much momentum here as I would have liked.
E + Minx, don't despair. voter turnout seems to always be absolute crap when it comes to runoffs, no? it was an accomplishment that the Dem organization in the state pushed this thing to a runoff in the first place. and it could be the first step towards serious inroads in y'all's 2010 Congressional and State-level elections. all important shit.
