Skip to comments.GA 2008 SENATE RUNOFF ELECTION RESULTS (Live) [Chambliss wins in landslide: 58/42%]
Posted on 12/02/2008 3:49:00 PM PST by RobFromGa
The polls close in ten minutes. Hopefully Georgia has held the line today. Poll traffic was reported as steady here Northeast Atlanta today...
This is going to end up about 65 to 35 for Chambliss, the AA’s will not come out to vote, they got their Obama, they don’t give a shit about this senate race.
Who'dya vote for?
Well I can persoanlly verify that Saxby got atleast one vote. LOL!
Update III: 2% reporting
2 NY’ers that actually showing concern for the USA... WOW.. now ... Why didn’t Bill put Hill as Sec of State... would have kept her OUT OF THE SENATE??
But isn't the ability to think a requirement for that???
we cant allow a filibuster to happen
I want filibusters!
>>Plus, I want to see a big win for Saxby just to shove it down Obama and Schumers throats.
Not to mention Bill Clinton, who came here to campaign for Martin, on the same day that Wayne LaPierre and Chis Cox of the NRA were here to campaign for Chambliss.
I went over to the endorsement event at Chambliss campaign HQ, and peered through through the wall of TV reporters and cameras while Perdue, Cox, LaPierre, and Chambliss made their statements. There was an older guy there in hunting cammies, blaze orange vest and hat, with his English Setter. The Setter was even barking at appropriate moments, with Chambliss commenting “there’s an ‘A-MEN!’”. It was hilarious, good stuff.
Praying for Saxby, Georgia and our country!
Peggy Noonan is writing her weekly column for the WS Journal. And if you can understand her gibberish, her point will be that Chambliss could have won by a much greater margin but for the fact that Governor Palin campaigning for him was a “drag” on the ticket.
Dekalb and Fulton and Cobb counties will be the ones to watch, if Martin canot run up a tab in those, its over.
34K to 14K
Based upon an examination of the votes cast by county in this election with the general election, I declare Chambliss elected. Now will he feel any obligation to vote like a conservative as a favor to the Governor of Alaska.
** Maybe he and Mel M. can start a thinktank together.”**
They can call it the “Did they vote yet Institute”
**But isn’t the ability to think a requirement for that???**
NO ... it’s not a requirement for CONGRESS why should it be for a Think tank??
COME ON, GEORGIA!!!!
Peggy Noonan needs a nice banging. I don’t think she has been screwed in a long time, she is SO jealous of Sarah because Sarah has a great life, great family, and an awesome job. She is also adored by millions meanwhile Peggy is only adored by herself
I hope Herman Cain does run again. He had my vote on his first try.
Yes it would have kept her out of the senate. Now the Dems are thinking about replacing her with him. Obama will really have his hands full then.
I’m in McDonough and turnout was much greater than expected all day.
Oh if only...
If Chambliss can win big tonight, it just shows that AA’s voted for Obama and didnt give a rat’s sh%t about anything else, not to mention he couldnt turn them out to vote for the white guy.
For those of you who are not from Georgia, this is why Saxby had a problem:
...McCain was able to pull off about 70% of the Georgia vote, and Saxby couldnt get 50%? Georgians want to vote Republican, but Saxby fails to give them a reason.
Saxby didnt care what (the people) had to say on immigration, he didnt care what they had to say about the Gang of 10 on the energy issue, and he didnt care what they had to say on the big bailout.
The worst part is that he refuses to back down and admit he voted wrong on the above 3 issues; instead he offers excuses trying to explain to us dumb voters why he was right and we are wrong.
I used to have a great deal of respect for Peggy Noonan, no longer.
She has turned into a bitter old hag......
**Now the Dems are thinking about replacing her with him.**
Dear GOD ... what did we do to deserve THAT??
Since I am a New York, sorry to say, which counties in Georgia should keep our eye on
3% of precincts reporting
Haha! Sometimes we need the bitter truths, huh? You may be right.
Martin (D) 21,007
“Chambliss might not be perfect but if he wins tonight, even by one vote, it is a defeat for Obama and the left, and we can celebrate that.”
Agreed. Chambliss is far from perfect and I believe he got a jolt this election. I hope so anyway.
What was the result for McCain vs Obmama in Georgia?
It is going to be another Clinton administratin. His people are in place. Her at State and if Bill gets the Senate sit. It will be fun to watch
He better. At the rally yesterday, it was exceedingly clear that the man was in her debt.
The GOP needs to face facts. This woman, and her message is the future, and the sooner they close ranks and follow her lead, the better!
Fulton, Cobb and Dekalb.
My wife, daughter and myself went and voted for Saxby while holding our nose.....
If it wasn’t for the senate majority in balance, we would have bounced the RINO......
Unfortunately, the issue is bigger than Saxby, as a result, he benefits......
Thanks for the information on the counties
Like your ID, wish you were the real deal. Sarah could learn a lot from FReepers.
**instead he offers excuses trying to explain to us dumb voters why he was right and we are wrong.**
Sounds like you don’t have much of a choice, pretty bad when we only vote for someone ..ONLY because they have an (R).. which is not much of a choice!!
God Bless Georgia, and Help the USA!
“She said Saxby has received the message loud and clear, and will, if re-elected, return to D.C. a much better listener, and therefore, a stronger conservative.”
That would be an answer to prayer!
(1) Significantly lower minority vote.
(2) I think alot of the ulta left wing is seeing how change means more of the same (clintoon). Thusly staying home.
We should get together over a cold one some day.
“**But isnt the ability to think a requirement for that???**
NO ... its not a requirement for CONGRESS why should”

Just a head start. Feel free to amend and append
If they are like the rest of the states...the last ones reporting.
Larry Sabato is predicting an easy win for Chambliss reminding all that it’s still a red State. Fingers crossed he’s right.
Sounds like Palin grabbed Chambliss by the throat and said, you don’t act like a republican, it’ll be rino hunt time come next primary season.
Mine too. Like Sarah said yesterday, we need TRUE conservatism to come back to the Republican party. Conservatism will win tonight, and it will show Sarah that she made a huge difference in this race and she can use it going forward to 2012
It’s amazing to me that Chambliss needed a runoff against a mostly unknown liberal Dem! If the Dems had run a better candidate, even Max Cleland again, they might have won without a runoff.
I’m hoping that’s what happens this Saturday in New Orleans. Dollar Bill Jefferson is running against a dark horse Republican.
I think she could have pulled it off for McCain if she had been on the campaign before all the early voting.
