I went to a meet and greet for Karen Handel tonight at Senator Cecil Staton’s home. Lots of people there. There’s a real feeling of momentum in the air. I’ve been able to keep up with most all of the Democrat candidates, but Gail Buckner has flown under the radar and I haven’t heard much from her.
Karen is very charming and I was pleased to vote for her today.
Christy and I voted today in Macon. There was a large crowd, but it was noticeable for the lack of black voters in line. That really stood out to me. There were a lot of old people and a healthy mix of young people. But it was almost entirely white.
I’ve voted early for the last three years and this was the most homogenous crowd I’ve ever seen. I have no clue what that means. I’m just passing it on.
Speaking of voting, I hate to break it to my party, but though I have a rabid partisan streak in me, I did not vote straight Republican in the statewide races. I did, however, after much wavering back and forth, vote for Mac Collins. I just can bear the idea of Nancy Pelosi as House Speaker.
