More than 8,000 people have already voted ahead of Georgia's April 18 special election

More than 8,000 votes have already been cast in Georgia ahead of a key April 18 special election that includes the nationally watched race to replace former U.S. Rep. Tom Price.

Early voting in Cobb, DeKalb and Fulton counties started a week ago and will include this Saturday, when polls will also be open.

The 6th Congressional District that Price represented covers parts of Cobb, DeKalb and Fulton counties.

The other race on the ballot will replace former state Sen. Judson Hill, R-Marietta, and is for Senate District 32, which covers parts of Cobb and Fulton counties. Hill vacated the seat to join the field of 18 candidates running to replace Price.

2. Early voting hurts Dems

Not so much the act of voting early. In the national election the early votes were prognosticated for the Democratic candidates, by a largish margin. That broadcasting helped motivate Republicans to get out the vote. Nothing to be done MSM is going to sensationalize things. That's my theory anyway.

Comey didn't help either. I hate him more and more everyday. He is a partisan hack. He admitted such in his testimony to Congress.
