| Polls have closed in Georgia as of about 20 minutes ago. We'll be using this thread to follow the results as they come in.
RESULTS: Associated Press (7/15 county baselines) | GA SoS
10:03PM: Here's DSCC Chair Chuck Schumer's statement on Jim Martin's victory:
"Georgians chose an impressive candidate today who has the experience and vision to change the direction of our nation. As a public servant under both a Democratic and a Republican Governor, Jim has a proven record of working across party lines, and he will be an effective and independent voice for Georgia families. This is a winnable race."
9:10PM: With 78% of precincts reporting, Martin leads by 59-41. Like many of you in the comments section, the Swing State Project is calling this race for Jim Martin! Hooray!
8:54PM: With 66% of precincts in (according to the SoS), Martin is leading by 61-39. Looks like he's on pace to deliver a major league spanking to the Bush-voting train wreck that is Vernon Jones.
8:45PM (David): According to the SoS, Jones is getting crushed in his home county, DeKalb, by better than a 2-to-1 margin.
8:34PM: Martin is also crushing in Fulton County (Atlanta proper), by roughly 5200 to 1600 votes with under 27% of the county's precincts reporting. Jones won the county by 38-37 in July.
8:21PM: Martin crushes Jones by almost 70-30 in Gwinnett, a big improvement for Martin, who lost the county by 36-30 to Jones in July. (H/T: TheUnknown285)
8:09PM: Reading from the AP's tally, Martin is up by 62-38 with 663 of 3148 precincts reporting.
8:02PM: As you may have noticed, there's some disparity between the SoS' numbers and the AP's, with the AP consistently showing Jones missing around 2000 votes compared to the SoS' tally. I'm not sure what the issue is, but in this topsy-turvy world, I just don't know who to trust.
7:59PM: 337 precincts in, and Martin is up by 56-44. He'll need to bank as many votes as possible before the metro Atlanta area reports in full.
7:45PM: With 76 precincts counted (of 3148, mind you), Martin is up by 59-41, including a very early lead in Gwinnett County, a populous area that went to Jones by a 36-30 plurality in July.
7:31PM ET: Martin has the early 54-46 lead so far, but with only a scant 18 precincts reporting, we aren't seeing any numbers from the state's major population centers (DeKalb, Fulton, Cobb, and Gwinnett counties) yet.
