Georgia's "Republican Revolution"...part 2

after taking the governor's office and the senate (due to party jumps) 2 years ago, the GOP has now taken the state house and controls both U.S. Senate seats. They also control 7 of the 13 House seats (losing one to gerrymandering).

This is a surprise?

The entire south has been overwhelmingly Republican since the 60s.

This is a pretty big shift. People assume we're some Rep-dominated state, but it's been pretty Dem-controlled for quite some time.

The "Solid South" which has been completely abandoned by the Democratic Party has now completely fallen. I don't blame them for voting Republican, they don't know what a Democrat is.

The Republican leadership were second-tier Democrats just a year or two ago. Todays Republicans are yesterday'r Democrats. Only the label has changed, not their governing philosophy. Gene Talmadge would fit right in.
