Saxby Chambliss, the Republican incumbent in Georgia is looking like he’s going to win his Senate race against Democrat Jim Martin.
As of now, he’s taken some counties that Martin won the first time (he has a substantial lead in Jenkins county with 57% reporting, while he lost that county the first time, as well as several other counties).
As of now, Chambliss has 332,569 votes (65%), and Martin has 180,225 (35%). This is with 22% reporting.
I’m ready to call it. Chambliss has lead in all the polls after the election, and I see no reason that Martin is going to make up this 15% (although he will beging to rebound once more of metro-Atlanta comes in.
So, there you go: Saxby Chambliss, that’s my call. I’m guessing the media will have a call by 9:30 P.M. EST.
