PAC money betting heavily on Georgia incumbents

Georgia political blogger Jim Walls has taken a look at all of the millions pouring into Georgia races from political action committees -  $8.4 million to Georgia candidates this year through September.

Pundits predict a wave of anti-incumbency sentiment—fueled by tea parties, voters’ disgust with Washington and other factors — will sweep the nation tomorrow.

That could happen in Georgia, but the folks who finance much of the political campaigning here are gambling millions of dollars that it won’t.

We downloaded those donations from a state database to take a closer look at where that money wound up. None of the findings will surprise anyone who follows Georgia politics or campaign finance, but it never hurts to review.

This is the worst crop I candidates in both parties I have seen in over 60 years of voting. No matter who wins tomorrow the people of our state and nation are going to be the losers!
