Well, Nathan Deal beat Karen Handel by about 600,000 votes
Edited on Tue Aug-10-10 11:18 PM by napi21
here in the Ga. Republican primary runoff for Governr. Those re the results with 99% of the vote counted so I gues that's it.

I really disliked both candidates, but if there's anything positive out of this election is that Half Gov. Palin endorsed Handel and this means she screwed up again!

I hope this takes even more of the glow off those damn golden wings Palin thinks she has.

1. This is excellent news.
Any time SWSNBN gets slapped down is a good day.

6. You're right I was looking at the total votes & thinking they were showing
the difference. Even 2,000 I think is probably too many to make up with only 1% left to count.

5. It's a 2500 vote difference
Handel pulled in big numbers in the urban counties, while Deal performed best in the rural counties and some of the suburbs, which was the combination needed to win. Sarah Palin couldn't carry her to win.

7. Both of these people
are absolutely wicked. Their TV ads were vicious - if this is a precursor to what the rethugs are going to be throwing at Dems in the fall, we better start pulling together, folks.

8. Failin remains consistent with the kiss of death.



Sooner or later these lame assholes will get the point that The Quitter is poison.

9. John King had the nerve to say that Palin was having remarkable success with their endorsements. nt
