While the election results are stunning (four Republican candidates received more votes than the Democrat), they're also disappointing from this perspective: Lee Hawkins was not elected into Congress during the special election, Georgia's 9th district will remain without representation & Washington Republicans, who need backup, will have to wait several more weeks for a safe seat to finally bring forth another Conservative vote.
On June 8th, 2010; Georgia's 9th congressional district will once again have full representation in the House of Representatives. Now the 40% or so voters who preferred another candidate to Tom Graves and Lee Hawkins must make a decision, and though I support Lee Hawkins, I hope the appropriate decision is reached, whether I be correct or incorrect.
