There’s a new poll from the newly formed Georgia Newspaper Partnership. Barnes leads the Democrats with 54%, with Baker pulling 30%.

The real race, then, is on the GOP side, where Oxendine, the state insurance commissioner, gets 31 percent of the vote to 23 percent for Handel, the former secretary of state. Former U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal, however, is within striking distance of earning a spot in the Aug. 10 runoff. The poll found Deal with 18 percent. Former state Sen. Eric Johnson of Savannah is a distant fourth, with 6 percent.

Bring on The Ox!

    Bold prediction: Ox won’t make it into the runoff.

    This will make me sad, because I would love to watch Roy beat him like a drum in November.
