August 20 is primary day in Georgia, and in a state where there are three Republicans in a heated race to try to unseat a vulnerable Democratic governor, and two Republicans trying to unseat a very liberal Democratic senator, the two races getting the greatest attention are congressional primaries. Cynthia McKinney is facing a stearn challenge from former judge Denise Majette. Cynthia is pulling out all the stops in this one. She is recycling out old endorsements from former Atlanta mayor and ambassador Andrew Young, is the pet child of the radical Islamists in this country, and is equating receiving donations from Republicans in the district as being illegitimate (while she is receiving tons of cash from outside the district). While Majette is as liberal as the sky is blue, at least she is respectable and has a real chance at getting McKinney (the disgrace of Georgia) out of the House - FINALLY! The other is between Representatives Bob Barr and John Linder. The Democratic legislature and governor chopped up both of their districts. Bob Barr decided to move out of the district he was drawn into (which leaned Democratic) despite polls indicating that he could win in it. This new district has more former John Linder voters than that of anyone else. Barr is an in your face type who won't take any gruff. However, he is often seen as a one-issue conservative. While Linder has championed true tax reform, he also is a strong proponant of a variety of conservative issues. The last poll I saw a couple of weeks ago had Linder in the lead, but I heard it has gotten close leading up to the primary. On Tuesday in Georgia, one House Rep. will definately take it on the chin, and there is a real likelihood that another will as well. For the record, I hope Majette and Linder win their respective primaries. I vote in the Sixth district (with one Republican running unoppsed - Johnny Isakson), so I couldn't vote in either race.
