Who Won Georgia Elections in 2008?

Senator Saxby Chambliss
Date: 
Nov 4, 2008

Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss (pictured) didn't quite reach 50% in the general election, so it took a December 6 runoff election to defeat Democratic challenger Jim Martin.

All the incumbent members of congress ran for re-election in Georgia in 2008 - and all of them were sent back to Washington to represent their districts.

Georgia Senator Johnny Isakson (Republican) is up for re-election in 2010, the same year as the Georgia Gubernatorial election.
