And Then There Were Seven: Dems Hold on to Georgia Seat

Wiki the VoteThe Georgia secretary of state today certified the final results of the Georgia congressional elections and Democratic Rep. John Barrow squeaked by Republican challenger Max Burns with less than one percent of the vote to hold on to the Georgia 12th seat. According to the AP story, the Republican-controlled Georgia Legislature redrew the 12th district in 2005 to exclude Barrow's house and many of his constituents, but Barrow moved back into the district and prevailed anyway.

There are still seven races left to be called. Check back with Congresspedia and our Election 2006 homepage for details, updates and analysis.
