Will it have been effective grassroots mobilization, off-the-charts name recognition, association with the Christian Coalition, effective explanation of questions raised about his past dealings, support from national figures like Giuliani, Zell, and John Smoltz, effective articulation of his plan for a better Georgia, or any other reason not listed here?
It goes without saying that, if Cagle wins, the reasons will be effective communication to his base and undecideds of his leadership experience and vision, combined with — and most likely outweighed by — dissatisfaction with Reed, whose past dealings most Cagle voters probably have a bad feeling about. So, if Reed is to defeat Cagle in this increasingly tight race, what will be the catalyst? I know what Bull Moose, Demon, Maurice, Wire, and others will say, so Reed folks, please chime in!
