In the end, it wasn't even close, but the Chambliss/Martin contest in Georgia sent a wake-up call to every Republican in the country.
Tonight's victory for Senator Saxby Chambliss dances the GOP back from the edge of complete, utter diaster with a veto-proof Senate and unending and unaffordable liberal agenda.
My organization Move America Forward and its political action committee met the devil when we went down to Georgia last week--rather, six thousand devils wearing union t-shirts sent by Obama and his wholly owned and operated union minions.
Jan Johnson and I campaigned in Augusta, Savannah, Columbus and Macon ..asking Georgians to sensibly return Senator Chambliss to Washington. Jan is a Gold Star Mom whose son Justin was killed in Iraq in 2004, and whose husband enlisted at age 46 to avenge the death of his boy by the jihadists. Their son Joshua has also served honorably in Afghanistan.
Jan and other military families understood that the Democrats are talking about an immediate 25 percent cut to the Defense Department - across the board cuts that directly affects folks there.
Georgia decided it couldn't afford to send Jim Martin to our nation's capitol.
Now, let's keep our fingers crossed that the psycho-stalker Al Franken doesn't end up cheating his way into the U.S. Senate.
