Georgia Election Results – Primary June 20, 2010


My apologies for being so long getting this information to you.  I’ll try to do better, but until they get a handle on a few nagging little medical problems, I may be a day late and a dollar short for a few weeks.

Georgia had their Primary Election on June 20.  Let’s take a quick look at the results as posted on the Georgia Secretary of State webpage.
