GA Lt. Gov: Reed Trailing Badly in Early Ballots

At 9:41 PM, Georgia time, Ralph Reed, the scandal-plagued rightwing Christian operative, is tanking in his bid for lieutenant governor, according to the Hotline:

LG (R) 33% in
Casey CAGLE: 55.2% 59,623
Ralph REED: 44.8% 48,344

Mood Dampens at Reed Headquarters:

At 9:15 p.m., Reed still had not come down to greet supporters at the InterContinental Buckhead Hotel, but was huddled with close friends watching returns come in. On his cell phone, Cobb County GOP chairman Anthony-Scott Hobbs got word that Reed was losing Cobb County by 10 percentage points, 11,000 votes to 9,000 votes. “You can’t win without Cobb,” he said.

Update: Reed conceded at 6:55 Pacific.
