Battleground Georgia

A December 2 runoff looms for the Republican incumbent Saxby Chambliss and Democratic challenger Jim Martin.

Earlier the Chambliss campaign announced John McCain will campaign for the Republican Senator.

“We’re bringing in all the superstars,” said Michelle Grasso, the Chambliss campaign’s communications director. “We’re in the process of reaching out to everyone. And it’s not just us reaching out, people are contacting us to ask how they can be helpful.”

Some 2012 hopefuls may also contribute a helping hand. A Romney spokesperson said the former Governor would love to help in anyway possible.

“We are now talking with his campaign about how we can be of further help in the run-off,” Fehrnstrom said.

Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin may contribute her star power to the Senate race.

“She wants to come down, but right now we are working with her schedulers to see if that’s possible,” Grasso said.

The Obama campaign is not letting Georgia out of their sights, however, sending their Ohio team to Georgia in hopes to add one more state to the Democratic caucus. With far less African-American turnout expected in the runoff, however, Chambliss may be able to fend off Democratic challenger Martin for another six-year term.
