Nope, not PatriotPooch…..
the Georgia Senate Race!
As of 7:50PM, with about 6% of the vote in — Saxby Chambliss leads Jim Martin by 66% to 34%.Â Â But Atlanta and its immediate suburbs aren’t reporting in yet…. so hard to say how this will go.
UPDATE: It is looking verrrrrry good for Saxby!Â Â With 68% of the vote in, Saxby leads 60% to 39%.
UP-UPDATE: SAXBY WINS RE-ELECTION. GOP will keep a check on Obamania in US Senate.
UPDATE (from Dan): With 97% of precincts reporting, Chambliss wins with 57.4% of the vote, nearly 15 points ahead of his Democratic challenger. He thus ran ahead of McCain’s total in Georgia on November 4 while Martin ran behind his original percentage — and that of Obama. Doesn’t seem Obama can succeed in getting the vote out for candidates other than himself, something which bodes well for the GOP in 2010.
