What truck hit Rand Knight? And perhaps Barry Fleming made a miscalculation...

It's 10:40 and Rand Knight has about 16,000 more votes than I do in the Democratic Senate primary. Ouch. Score one for mainstream candidates.

Former state Rep. Barry Fleming is taking a beating in his bid to unseat U.S. Rep. Paul Broun in the 10th. Memo to state GOP: Paul Broun is no longer an outsider candidate, he's your congressman in the 10th District.

Memo to Fleming: Maybe it's not a good idea to attack Christian doctors on character issues from three decades ago.

If Vernon Jones ends up winning the runoff and is the Democratic Party's Senate nominee, does that negate the Obama bump in Georgia? I've already heard a couple of potential Democratic voters say "Great. Now I'm gonna have to vote for Saxby Chambliss."

In Houston County, neither Larry O'Neal nor Willie Talton had competition to retain their state house seats. But more than 4,000 people voted for O'Neal and 1,777 voted for Talton.

More kick-em-while-their-down comments, and actual analysis, tomorrow.

Slight disagreement on this one Travis. I would contend that Broun is the outsider and that is why he keeps beating the establishment's (Glenn Richardson's) candidates.
