My sense of things this morning, judging by all the calls and emails I’ve gotten, is that Cagle has pulled ahead of Ralph after all the constant punching. The Reed people seem perturbed and more than slightly stressed and the Cagle people rather relaxed.
However, I note that the Cagle campaign has stopped showing the controversial Mariana Island ad. I have detected more than a little blow back over that ad. I’m told it is still running. Given the reactions of people who have seen it and talked to me — other than me (I think it is a killer ad) — they might ought to consider that.
Lastly, I’ve called and had others call boards of elections around the state — turn out is low for early voting, even in places like Gwinnett and Cobb. Whoever has the better ground game is probably at an advantage right now.
