Early Voting in SAXBY’s Favor?

Last night at our meeting, you heard from Campaign Chairman Matt Hindin about Senator Saxby Chambliss’ campaign runoff. It’s looking like Saxby is doing pretty well… Check out what the Atlanta Journal Constitution is saying.
It seems that 74.8% of early voters have been white, while only 22.3% have been African-American. This may not bode well for Senator Chambliss’ opponent, Atlanta Democrat Jim Martin. In comparison, African American turnout was 35% in the General Election.

To date, slightly over 101,000 voters have come back and compare that to almost 2,000,000 who early voted in the general election. There’s still a week of early voting left, but it’s a short week because of Thanksgiving.
