UPDATE by Buzz: Let’s turn this into the Official Results Open Thread. Watch Charlie on 11Alive and discuss the election results here.

The SoS results website is here.


For real excitement you’ll want to tune in to WXIA 11Alive, NBC in Atlanta.  Why is that you ask?  Well, I’ll be there.  Want more? How about we throw in Goldie Taylor.  She and I were in studio together on Super Tuesday.  She’s not so bad for an MSNBC contributor and someone that wants the President re-elected.

OK, still not convinced?  How about we add in former Governor Roy Barnes and former Congressman and Presidential Candidate Bob Barr.  Come on folks, this will be Georgia political gold!

I’m told we’ll also have pro and anti-charter school amendment folks in studio – Now revealed to be Senator Vincent Fort and Rep Rahn Mayo. (Fireworks alert!)

We’ll all be rotating in and out throughout the evening with Anchor Melissa Long.  Tune in tomorrow tonight and check us out, beginning about the 7:40.

I would watch, but you didn’t tell me what time.

Calypso November 6, 2012 at 8:07 am

All day, all night. You just need to watch like MaryAnn. No specific hours.

Down by the seaside siftin’ sand? It’s hard to get reception there.

“It’s hard to get reception there.”

All the better for watching Charlie.

Yeah, I’m trying to figure out how to get only audio on my TV. I could listen and see if he gives proper credit to all of us who provide such great wisdom on P/P.

You’ve enough credibility to pull informed viewers even without the name-dropping.

Charlie November 6, 2012 at 9:11 am

I was trying to help their credibility.

Fox News just called Georgia for Obama.

Calypso November 6, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Boy, you sure had me there, Ed.

Well, Mercury is in retrograde, so stuff like that might happen.

Check out Huff Po for a neat realtime Electoral College map.

Charlie November 6, 2012 at 8:10 pm

We’re alternating between and live on TV. I think the Charter discussion is up alternating during the next half hour.

Chris Huttman November 6, 2012 at 8:54 pm

Scott Holcomb running 4% ahead of Obama in Chamblee – both winning there.

Ed November 6, 2012 at 9:26 pm

PA goes to BHO, the teeth-gnashing from the GOP if they lose Florida will be interesting to watch.

Ed November 6, 2012 at 9:40 pm

I’m calling the race for Obama… FL, OH and CO all go his way.

objective November 6, 2012 at 9:45 pm

saw you on the tele-tube-net charlie.
nice job representing.

Ed November 6, 2012 at 10:50 pm

Judging from my FB news feed, Republicans are only discussing local races, silent on POTUS, Dems are calling an Obama win.

Ed November 6, 2012 at 11:18 pm

HuffPo has Obama at 268 electoral college votes.

Ed November 6, 2012 at 11:23 pm

Four more years.

I was correct!

Macro Demographics – The media indicates that nationally, in politics, the tide is running out on white guys and married women. Lots of pocket variances like white union workers, seniors…..

Disappointed that Amendment 2 passed. Happy that Boedeker lost. Happy that Barrow won. Other than that, meh.
