McKinney in Danger

From The Hill:

"[McKinney] is in a very difficult position. A well-known person tends to get all the votes they're going to get the first time around. That's the history," a knowledgeable CBC lawmaker said, predicting that Johnson would get Coyne's votes.

More in today's Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Emory University political scientist Alan Abramowitz said he thinks Johnson will get plenty of contributions over the next few weeks. "There is a ton of anti-Cynthia money out there," he said.

Abramowitz said Johnson is a serious threat to McKinney. "Once you force an incumbent into a runoff, that means the incumbent is in big trouble," he said.

The runoff is August 8 . The winner will emerge as the heavy favorite to win against Republican Catherine Davis.
