Hopefully it won’t take long to see some results.  I’ve got my fingers crossed that Jim Martin is the next Senator to represent the State of Georgia.  I for one will throw a party if Saxby Chambliss is the next Republican casualty.

This outcome of this seat will tell if the Democrats will get their much needed and wanted 60 seat majority.  Now if someone would just give me some damn numbers, I’d be a happy camper right now.

Updates…well maybe I should have kept my mouth shut.  We are getting smoked in Georgia right now.  Only 9% is in, but if this keeps up I’m going to bed one sad puppy.  The link below will take you to resuts.

Obama on his Way to Georgia…Nope, but they’ve got Ludacris?

Another little tid bit that makes you double check the validity of the source.  Apparently Ludacris is on his way to campaign for Jim Martin.  I’ll admit this perplexes me a bit…what’s up with Georgia??

Although, I guess I’d rather have Ludacris than Sarah Palin…but hey that’s just me.

Chambliss, Cocky or Secure?

Saxby Chambliss.  Every time I hear that name the first thing that comes to mind is the little vomit taste in my mouth.  I’ll admit, I’m no lover of the freshman Senator from Georgia.  In fact, I really just feel pure rage and utter contempt.  Max Cleland is the second thought that flashes through my mind, or maybe it’s the first and it causes the vomit taste. 

I’m hoping the good old boy from the South takes a tumble.  I guess like everyone else, I’ll have to wait for the results from the run off on December 2nd to see if the Democratic Challenger, Jim Martin, has done enough to swing the state of Georgia into the land of purple.

Chambliss and Martin Running Neck and Neck

Many polls have Chambliss and Martin in a pretty tight race.  Some have Chambliss leading, but within the margin of error.

Turning Out the Vote in Georgia

Republicans aren’t the only ones bringing heavy hitters to the Georgia for the Senate seat runoff.  President Clinton made an appearance last Wednesday and Al Gore was out this weekend supporting Democratic challenger Jim Martin.  Apparently the President Elect has made a radio ad, but no appearance is planned. 

I still think he needs to get to Georgia!  It very well may end up being the key to holding the Senate with a 60 seat majority.

Franken…Number 59 or Magical Number 60?

Franken is narrowing the gap between Republican Freshman Senator Norm Coleman in the bitter cold state of Minnesota.  Coleman now leads by a mere 174 votes!  Whoo hooo Team Franken!

As a fellow former Minnesotan, Paul Wellstone fan, and Franken lover this is GREAT news.  I have good feeling about the recount!

My only question is…will Franken or Jim Martin be number 59 or 60 for the Democrats?
