Got the Message Yet?
To say that the GOP meltdown of November 2006 was historic is an understatement. With today’s announcement that Republican challenger Max Burns will not contest the Georgia secretary of state’s declaration yesterday that Democratic Representative John Barrow has won his bid for a second term representing Georgia’s 12th District, Democrats have “pulled off a complete shutout over the Republicans, who didn’t pick up a single governorship or seat in the House or Senate ...,” writes Eric Kleefeld at TPM Muckraker. “All the remaining undecided races are for GOP-held seats. Incidentally, Georgia was one of the very few fronts where the GOP was eyeing potential pickups, because a recent redistricting made Barrow and fellow Georgia Dem Rep. Jim Marshall vulnerable. Dems have now won both races.”
