The Race for Georgia

This race is probably the least interesting of the three.

Incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss defeated Democrat Jim Martin 49.8% to 46.8%. Georgia state law provides that if no candidate receives 50% of the vote, there is a runoff between the top two candidates.

Since Martin would have to pull almost all of the remaining 3.4% of the vote to overtake him, Chambliss is expected to win the runoff which will be held on December 2nd.
