  Muscogee County Party Chair Alice Pate said, “This marks the end of 28 years of Reaganomics. It is the end of the Reagan Revolution and the beginning of the Obama Revolution.”

  State Representative Calvin Smyre was enjoying the results, also, especially when he learned that he was ahead of Seth Baker by over 70% of the vote.

  Nobody was happy that Jim Martin was so far  behind Saxby Chambliss in the Georgia U.S. Senate race.

   Over all, though, the mood was high energy celebratory. People were excited and happy.
