First result is, again, the SOS “improved” website is overly complicated for election night results. While it may provide better data to slice and dice after the fact, it’s quite simply too hard if not impossible to tell what results are in, which are still out, and who you’re waiting on to come in. New does not equal improved. The Secretary of State needs to spend less time sending out press releases screaming “Jobs!” and more time running his elections division.

Mike Beaudreau lost challenger Tommy Hunter for Commissioner in Gwinnett by 56 votes. One of the good guys, Beaudreau pays the price of guilt by association.
Alan Painter, a great guy who I’m very impressed with (As good of a grasp on issues as anyone I’ve seen on the campaign trail) lost in the HD 1 runoff to John Deffenbaugh. Someone get Painter on your radar screen. He’s one of the good guys that we need to find a place for.
