Don’t Forget About Georgia…

…Obama sure hasn’t.  From the Huffington Post:

Democratic officials confirm that Barack Obama is sending aides to help with the runoff senatorial campaign in Georgia, putting his post-election coattails to an immediate test.

Organizers who worked on behalf of the Illinois Democrat are heading to the Peach State to offer similar assistance to Jim Martin, the Democratic challenger who is facing a second-round contest against incumbent Saxby Chambliss after neither candidate received 50 percent of the initial vote.

The investment by Obama, confirmed by an official working on behalf of the Senate campaign, apparently includes “ground team” members as well as “online specialists and bloggers,” and represents one of the earliest tests of the influence he can wield on the political landscape.

Both campaigns are trying to muster resources for the December 2 runoff.  You can help out Chambliss here and here.  With tens of thousands of ballots uncounted in Alaska and very, um, interesting things happening for the vote tallies in Minnesota, this could be the crucial race to keep the Democrats from getting to 60 votes.
