Projection: The Two Jims Headed Towards Loss

With 70% of precincts reporting, Georgia Politics Unfiltered is ready to project that Republicans Saxby Chambliss and Lauren McDonald have both defeated their Democratic opponents by a sizable margin.

Chambliss currently leads Jim Martin by nearly 300,000 votes. Public Service Commission candidate Jim Powell is trailing his Republican opponent by about a quarter-million votes.

The non-partisan Court of Appeals race between Sara Doyle and Mike Sheffield is still too close to call.
