If you’re not a Georgia resident, there’s nothing you can do other than pray for a victory for Saxby Chambliss in the Georgia runoff election scheduled for December 2nd.
But if you happen to be a Georgia peach like I am, then get out there and vote for incumbent U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss in the runoff.
Chambliss finished ahead of his opponent Jim Martin (Dem.) by about 110,000 votes, but he captured only 49.8 percent of the popular vote. According to Georgia law, a candidate must win 50 percent of votes to be declared the winner. Close but no cigar.
Chambliss has a 100 percent pro-life voting record throughout his entire six-year term in the U.S. Senate. He also supports the Fair Tax and has been a strong voice for Georgia’s military community.
A win for Chambliss is critical. The Dems are hungry for his spot in the Senate because it looks like Martin’s victory over Chambliss would give the party 60 seats in the Senate – the golden number they need to prevent a filibuster. No wonder rumors of ACORN “recruiting” voters and drumming up support for Martin abound.
I’ll be voting tomorrow. Advanced voting begins today and ends on Wednesday, November 26th. Find advanced voting times and locations here.
