Race Too Close to Call; Charity Car Wash

ATLANTA -- WSBTV After a bruising runoff campaign, former Congressman Nathan Deal and former Secretary of State Karen Handel were neck and neck in a race to decide who faces Democrat Roy Barnes in November and it appeared there would not be a winner declared until Wednesday at the earliest.
Under Georgia law, the runner-up can request a recount if the margin is less than one percent of the total vote.
Unofficial results showed Deal leading with 51 percent of the vote to 49 percent for Handel, a margin of less than 2,500 votes with 99% of precincts reporting. Some absentee ballots and some early voting ballots had not been tallied according to the secretary of state's website.
Deal appeared on Channel 2 Action News This Morning on Wednesday (click on picture above to watch) and said that he believed military votes would come in by Friday. "We are still cautiously optimistic," Deal said.

Channel 2 Action News also asked Handel to appear for an interview Wednesday morning, but she declined the offer.
Tuesday night, Handel said, "There's a lot of absentee ballots out there to be counted so I think we need to keep our fingers crossed, be optimistic as we come in, and see the rest of the votes that get counted."
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Roy Barnes also appeared on Channel 2 Action News This Morning on Wednesday. When asked if he had a preference between Deal or Handel, Barnes said, "I don't think so. I think this comes down to who can put Georgians back to work and kids back to school. And we know that what has been the team in the last few years has failed in that."

Just drove past...they're using balloons and hand-carried signs, plus they have signs illegally placed both in and out of the Chamblee-Dunwoody right0fway.

If the sign ordinance had passed two weeks ago, Grogan's Heroes would have had to shut them down!!!

Hope the Council appreciates that forcing our kids into being scofflaws is "sooooooo not Dunwoody"
