Primaries, Polls

Primary votes in Colorado, Connecticut and Minnesota today with a runoff in Georgia. I'll try me a run down:

Georgia: Former SecState and Palin-endorsed Karen Handel in a runoff against former Rep. and Newt-endorsed Nathan Deal. Yesterday's Landmark poll showed Deal with a 2 point lead, and early results (55% reporting) show the same, 51%-49%. Winner faces Former GA Gov. Roy Barnes in November.

Connecticut: No surprises in the Senate races, Linda McMahon outdistancing her opponents and will take on Vietnam Veteran Syd Blumenthal for the Senate seat vacated by Christopher Bankshot Dodds (hey, at least he paid the taxes on his yacht. And the cleaning charges). The governor's race though is still a fight, between noted centrist Ned Lamont and former Stamford mayor Dan Malloy in the Dem race, and Republicans Tom Foley and Lt. Gov Mike Fedele.

Minnesota: Dayton leading big against the other two Dems in the Governor field. Any one of them can beat Horner.

Colorado: No results I can find yet. Incumbent Dem Michael Bennet holds a slight edge (3 pts) over challenger Andrew Romanoff in the Senate primary, and in the Republican race Lt. Gov. Jane Norton against Jim DeMint endorsed Ken Buck. Norton had a 2pt edge in yesterday's PPP. In the Governor's race, Republicans McInnis and Maes are virtually tied, one of them will face unchallenged Dem Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, whose name is so goofy I almost want to pull for him.

Almost I said.
