There are less than 4,000 challenged ballots to be reviewed by the five member State Canvassing Board, so a very clear picture of the final result should be available soon, just in time for the Georgia runoff next week. Saxby Chambliss appears on today’s program, and the Chuck Schumer-led Senate Dems are pouring cash into Georgia to try and get closer to 60. Please consider one last gift of $25, $50 or $100 to www.Saxby.org, and make sure you call every Republican you know in Georgia and urge them to vote today (the last day for early voting).
Campaign 2010 will get off to a quick start, and nowhere more quickly than in Pennsylvania, where Arlen Specter will run again. I supported him in 2004 and will be doing so enthusiastically again in 2010, and hope that Club for Growth’s talented Pat Toomey doesn’t run against Specter but instead for the Statehouse. The Los Angeles Times provides an early look at this race and the possible candidacy of MSNBC’s likeable liberal Chris Matthews.
