Georgia in Play

Georgia is in play. With McCain leading Obama 43 to 44 percent of the vote, and a huge number of unregistered voters - Georgia
's large number of electoral college votes will become part of the electoral map this fall.
There are 55. Thats right, count them. 55 new offices being opened up in Georgia this month. A big ground operation is underway, GOTV will be in full swing in about three to six weeks.
The benchmark indicator events are currently the Race between Jim Martin and Vernon Jones, for Democratic primary run-off coming soon. Does anyone know, by the way, what date that vote is held? Do I have this information correct?
And of course, the Democratic Challenge to the US Senate Seat held by Saxby Chambliss. Those numbers will determine how far the coat-tails of Obama are reaching - however, if Missippi is any indication - we are in play.
Any other states that come up as a surprise?
