Is Tuesday "Hughes Day?"

We'll see? Like much of the country, a considerable number of voters cast their ballots early due to the new rules that you can vote absentee without having a reason. From the reports we are hearing, the results from the early voting is that Republicans are taking the early/absentee votes 2 to 1. As I mentioned in my last post, according to the most recent internet polling, Brad is within the margin of error (Bishop 52%, Hughes 48%). These are encouraging signs, but as in every poll or report, being cautiously optimistic is necessary (given the potential inaccuracy of the information provided). In the 2nd Congressional District, there are 32 counties. In the history of this district, a Republican has only won six counties. If Brad wins seven, that in itself will be victory. This district is one of the last Democratic strongholds in the state. Winning this election would be monumental in the political landscape of the state of Georgia. According to some predictions, political analysts say that this race is "safely democratic," meaning that the Democratic party has no doubt that they will win this seat. If the question for which party comes down with the majority in the House of Representatives, an unexpected win could prove to be pivotable in determining whether the Republicans hold the majority or not. If you would like to keep up with the election results, here is the link to the Georgia Secretary of State election results. It should be updated throughout the day. Should I have time to write later today, I will update you on the events that take place. Please remember to exercise your right to vote. Remember it is not just a right, but a privilege. It was afforded to us and protected by men and women who daily put their lives on the line for our democratic freedoms.

When you get the opportunity you will want to go online and hear today's (11/7) chapel message at Southern.

Renee,

I won't have the opportunity to listen until I get back to Louisville. If it is about the elections today, it may be worthwhile to provide a cliff note version of the message.

No, not about the elections today it was about election eternally. I just thought you would like to hear it in parallel to your previous posts. Apparently it was the most calvinistic message in chapel thus far. I am still thinking over it. Oh and go Brad!

That's cool. I am assuming you were in chapel since the audio had not yet been posted. I am currently at the election party where we have just completed the prepartions for tonight. I will pass your encouragements on to Brad.
