The 9th District is supposed to be the most heavily Republican district in the state, so I guess that's why they are holding it in Dalton.

Deal will absolutely clobber Handel.

Besides being clearly more conservative, Deal is an excellent debater. Handel will only look to survive IMO. If she ends up doing well, it’s hers... but I think Deal will knock her down several notches. JMHO.

Forgot to mention - it may matter to some who weren’t aware.

Deal used to be a Dem and switched in 92 IIRC.
