    Mac, concede? What in the world are you talking about? Apparently, in his mind he’s running for re-election, just look at the FEC campaign disclosure 🙂

    Word on the street has Whitehead joining forces with Bobby Kahn to form a campaign management firm that will known as Titanic Consulting.

    I know it’s hard to loose a race. I have worked my fanny off trying to get GREAT people elected.

    I wish the best to Sen. Whitehead, his family, and his supporters.

    I would like to see everyone now give Congressman Broun a chance to make us proud to have a viable and highly capable representative in Washington.

    This is destiny!

    am i the only one that thinks its a stupid law that whitehead had to resign from the senate to run for another office–i thought it was dumb that cleland had to resign as sec of state to run for senate back in 96 also–from what i understand this law was kind of a response to the zell miller primary challenge to talmadge back in 1980–is it maybe time to revisit that?

    drjay:
    I see your points…but, I think that if you are running for an office, you should not hold another. Just look at Hillary, Obama, and the others using their office…our office, to position themselves in a bid for another office.
    Yes, let us congratulate Paul Broun and wish him well and support him regardless of who we voted for (the 7% who actually voted).

  6. Jeff Emanuel says:

    Lee, it was twice that percentage that voted.

    Carpe Forem, you’ve presented unrelated data and claim that they combined to produce a certain result. Sure, Sendelbach got over 700 votes. Sure, Broun’s margin of victory was under 400 votes. So?

    Without actual voter rolls to prove that your conjecture is actually true, I find it very hard to believe that Libertarians turned out in numbers like you suggest they did in order to vote for a candidate who declared that the Bible would govern his decisions in Congress.

    You can assume that all you want; frankly, though, I don’t see the evidence to back up your conjecture.

    i guess lee–but in the case of georgia state legislators–they are only in session for 40 days, and prohibited from fundraising while they are in session–its not like whitehead, or hudgens or fleming, or whoever would be missing out on the states work while they ran another race…

  8. Carpe Forem says:

    Jeff,

    My conjecture was in line with the article’s (outreach to Democrats and black voters ). However, mine might have more truth in it in that I have ask my libertarian friends and they have all stated that they voted and voted for Broun. John Fund eludes to this angle also.

    Even though most libertarians are still in the republican tent, they remain in the smaller government, less taxes, less spending and more freedom tent as well. I see many incumbent R challenges coming. Broun proves you can win without the Party’s status quo blessing$.

  9. CHelf says:

    Since there is no party registration in GA and no very accurate way to identify Libertarians how is proof expected to be gathered other than word of mouth?

  10. GOPeach says:

    It’s done! He’s in! Thank God!

    What a warm welcome by John Lewis and Jack Kingston.

    Dr. Broun is now officially CONGRESSMAN BROUN!!!!

    I am crying!
