Good morning, Georgia. The same unanswered question on the minds of voters last night remains this morning: Who won the GOP gubernatorial runoff between Nathan Deal and Karen Handel?
The results Tuesday night left the race too close to call. Neither candidate would concede defeat or declare a win. As of this morning, the Secretary of State’s website showed Deal with 290,580 votes, or 50.2 percent of the total, to Handel’s 288,091, or 49.8 percent. The website says the process of certifying the results will not be completed until the week of Aug. 16. The specter of a recount looms.
Bottom line? It’s shaping up to be a very interesting (and nerve-wracking) morning. Keep checking this blog and Twitter for the latest developments. Here are some helpful links to catch you up:
