Any chance the Dems take back the state-house in 2014 from Deal? I think Barrow could take him on. 2014 could end up like this year and 1998 with no party having an advantage, but the incumbent Presidential party makes a few gains.

This was from over a year ago, but PPP had Barnes and Deal tied for a rematch.

Democrats would be better off focusing on the Senate race, IMO. There's mumbling that Price of Gingrey may take the plunge against Chambliss in the primary. This would be one of the few seats that could conceivably represent a pickup opportunity for the Democrats.

Deal will probably win a second term. I agree that Barrow could give Deal a run for his money, but Barnes is damaged goods. I don't see Barnes running for another term any time soon.

Yeah, Barnes won't win.

Maybe we can recruit Clark Howard to run!? Cheesy

In my gut I feel like Deal won't run just because of his age and so he can take his retirement pension - he was basically bankrupt before the election.

Almost no chance Barnes runs though, under either circumstance. Barrow might be interested. Perhaps some of the Dems that Roy crushed in 2010 give it another go? Thurbert Baker comes to mind...

On the Republican side, if it's an open seat, I have a suspicion Ralston might be looking for a promotion. Wink

Figured I'd post this here because it's better than anywhere else.

AdamGriffin and I were talking on IRC- would there be sufficient interest in a Georgia Megathread, where we can talk about 2012, 2014, and beyond? We have enough active Georgians now to make it work. Maybe enough to (almost) rival the WA thread Cheesy

If so, I'll start one.

It seems unlikely for Democrats to be competitive here.

Georgia is pretty conservative. The party out of the White House tends to do better in midterm elections. And the midterm electorate is older and whiter.

However, for the same reasons, John Barrow may decide a risky election for Governor is more worthwhile than a risky reelection bid for Congress.
