Chambliss Win Looking Probable

Sphere: Related Content

One of the last two undecided Senate elections will finish tonight (hopefully):

Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Ensign (Nev.) said he believed incumbent Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss would defeat Democrat Jim Martin by five or six points in today's run-off election.

"The Barack Obama magic on Election Day has not carried over to the run-off," Ensign said.

Polls are scheduled to close at 7pm EST. Polling stations across the Peach State reported low voter turnout Tuesday, which would likely hurt Martin who was bolstered by the high-voter turnout inspired by Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama last month.

If Chambliss wins, he will shatter the Democrats hopes of attaining a 60-seat supermajority. A run-off was triggered after the November 4 election because neither candidate secured the majority of the votes, Chambliss won 49.8 percent to Martin's 46.8 percent. Libertarian candidate Allen Buckely took 3.8 percent of votes.
Good news in an election year where Conservatives will take any. Chambliss is a good Senator and just seeing Harry Reid's face when he finds out that he doesn't have a veto-proof majority will be golden. Old Harry didn't exactly ingratiate himself to the great unwashed (literally in Harry's eyes) today so this will be kind of pouring salt in the wound, which is always nice.

In the other race, incumbent Norm Coleman is inching closer to a win while Al Franken is inventing ballots and inching towards a another lawsuit or worse, allowing the Senate to decide.

Did you hear the good news? Chambliss is making it better for us already! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Bailout is for YOU
