Martha Zoller tightens race in Georgia (primary tonight)

With neither the governorship nor either U.S. Senate seat up this year, most of the attention in the Georgia primary Tuesday is focused on the heated primary for the newly-created 9th District. With 20 counties and parts of others in it, the new 9th is home to every constitutional officer in the Peach State and heavily Republican. Tomorrow’s primary is tantamount to election to Congress.

The contest for the all-important nomination is also important because its leading characters are representatives of the disparate factions in the national Republican Party: State Rep. Doug Collins, favorite of the GOP establishment and floor leader in the state House for Republican Gov. Nathan Deal, and Martha Zoller, longtime (16 years) radio talk show host, conservative swashbuckler, and Tea Party favorite.

There will definitely be a runoff between Doug Collins and Martha Zoller. Here are the latest election results:

Doug Collins is an estahlishment supporter while Martha Zoller has been fighting for the Constitutiona and liberty for many years. Collins is OK and acceptable, but it’s a safely Republican district, so we don’t have to settle for OK and acceptable. With Martha Zoller, we get it all.

I like both these people - yes i’m in Ga 9th. No bad choice here. And I’m not convinced Doug Collins is establishment. He may be establishment for NE Ga... but that’s further right than about anywhere at all.

If Sarah comes to see Martha though, it’s over. And I’m getting a pic or two.

Sean Hannity hasn’t chimed in for Zoller?

I agree, Martha Zoller would make a much bigger splash in Congress than would Doug Collins. She would also become the first Republican woman elected to Congress from GA. We can never have enough conservative women in Congress, particularly pro-life conservatives—sadly, through the years, many Republican congresswomen have been “pro-choice” on abortion, even while representing conservative districts (Granger from TX, Capito from WV, Jenkins from KS, etc.).

August 21st.

The 12th (to face rat John Barrow in a now GOP-leaning seat) is also going to a runoff. I know nothing about the candidates there but second place is still up in the air, State Rep. Lee Anderson placed first.
