*****Zsa Zsa Loses. At 10:17 PM EST, I’m calling the race for Hank Johnson. With 50% of the vote counted, Johnson leads with 58% of the vote. So long, Cynthia.****
Zsa Zsa McKinney trails “in very early returns in a runoff for the Democratic nomination” for Georgia’s Fourth Congressional District.
UPDATE (8:30 PM EST): Johnson leads McKinney by about 3 to 1, but no precincts for DeKalb County have yet reported.
UP-UPDATE (9:23 PM EST): I had thought Zsa Zsa’s strength would be in DeKalb County, but I just realized that her opponent Hank Johnson was once a Commissioner of that populous county.
UP-UP-UPDATE (9:30 PM EST): Why the delay in the reporting of DeKalb County returns. Not a single precinct has reported in yet.
UP-UP-UP-UPDATE (9:55 PM EST): DeKalb has now started reporting. Johnson leads there, but by a much narrowed margin than that he enjoys in Rockdale and Gwinnett counties. He’s still up by over 20 points.
