Handel alone in first in a messy race
As we cross past midnight in Georgia, it becomes primary election day in that state. So let’s look at one more poll of the Republican side of the Governor’s race. There’s almost certainly going to be a primary runoff, but with three credible candidates and two spots, somebody’s going to be left out when the music stops.

Getting a Handel on why endorsements are a big Deal
Once again, it looks like endorsements are driving a primary.

I received the information from out of state from a third party group interested in Georgia’s elections, particularly those candidates who will be good or bad for business in the state.
