Georgia was a blue state from the civil war until 2002 when we elected our first ever Republican governor and state legislature. Now it seems we're reverting back to blue status after a 20 year absents.
I'd say until the late 1990's almost all of our elections were decided in the Democratic Primary. The general election was just a formality.
It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
