Was it 4 weeks already since that nightmare evening of Nov. 4? Time goes by so quickly. Chambliss might not be perfect but if he wins tonight, even by one vote, it is a defeat for Obama and the left, and we can celebrate that.

Hiya RobFromGa!

I just knew you would have a Georgia runoff thread.

It is good to see you.

Down here on the coast, the poll workers said the turnout had been much, much higher than expected.

Went to see Sarah yesterday, with a friend who is Saxby’s local liaison. She said Saxby has received the message loud and clear, and will, if re-elected, return to D.C. a much better listener, and therefore, a stronger conservative.

We said to tell him, to use the opportunity to become a true leader, of TRUE conservatism.

Fingers crossed.

it will be a victory for Sarah Palin, inspite of Saxby Chambliss. If Chambliss goes back to DC with more RINO garbage, he will be out in the primary next time round. Maybe he and Mel M. can start a thinktank together.

Meanwhile, I wouldn’t mind seeing herman cain give it another go.

Matt Towery was on chnl 2 as I was surfing-on-through a moment ago with the comment that an appearance by Obama wouldn't even pull a win for little munchkin Martin.

He spoke as if this election was already a done deal.

I was very much enjoying the Jim Martin Rally staring TI and Ludacris, I couldn’t help thinking that the audience was probably made up of former DFACS wards who were abused and neglected under Ole Jimbo’s “leadership”

Voted at 6pm at a very Dem precinct near downtown Atlanta. Took me just 5 minutes to vote.

Still amazed that Jim Martin would bring the rapper Ludicrous to his final campaign rally. Could there be more of a contrast between that and having Sarah Palin campaign at our rally?

Two votes for Chambliss here in Suwanee. #427 and 428 at about 12:00. High turnout for our polling place.

I voted for Chambliss this morning in Alpharetta. Very light turnout but steady.

It is as cold as Alaska in Georgia today. I doubt the inner city Obama supporters would bother making that extra effort to vote for some smarmy white guy like Martin.
Heck, Obama didn’t even make an effort for Martin.

people are forgetting that Chambliss already has gotten more votes, and other states, he would already be declared the winner....factor in the 3rd party voters who surely would not want to give the socialist/fascist one more Senate vote...

exactly. someone with balls and brains. not someone whos “just looking to get things done”

As far as I’m concerned, they could halt all federal legislative activities for the next century and america would be better for it.

I am convinced that Herman Cain would not waiver once he landed at Reagan National.

I have a good feeling about his one. Even if he's not a conservative I'll take a (R) as opposed to a (D) right now. And if Coleman can squash that little bug Frankin it will be even sweeter.

A review of the votes, up to the minute, as compared to the General Election. Chambliss is doing much much better percentage wise than he did in the General.

Chambliss will carry this easy and the reason will be that the AA’s came out to vote for Obama on Nov 4th in Georgia, this time they wont bother in so many numbers.

“I was very much enjoying the Jim Martin Rally staring TI and Ludacris, I couldn’t help thinking that the audience was probably made up of former DFACS wards who were abused and neglected under Ole Jimbo’s “leadership””

Yikes. Rough crowd.

We had a totally fired up Jack Kingston, who had a whole schtick on how a vote for Martin, was indeed....Ludacris ; P

Seeing old “johnny”, and watching Jack, I could not help but think that 2010 might be just right for a new Republican Senator...

I’m keeping an eye on my county which is Houston County (home of Robins AFB). I bet it goes 80/20 for Chambliss. After all, he was our U.S. rep for many years.

Saxby is slightly better than McCain, but that doesn’t say a whole lot. Bottom line, we cannot afford Jim Martin. Plus, I want to see a big win for Saxby just to shove it down Obama and Schumer’s throats.

Held my nose and voted Saxby. There was nobody voting at my precinct at 4:30pm today.

FWIW, I was one of the 4% voting libertarian in the general to try and get the RINO’s attention.
