Barnes Ready to Start Campaigning for Runoff

Former Governor Roy Barnes' campaign is at Atlantic Station in Atlanta watching returns. But his campaign manager Chris Carpenter is there and spoke with GPB's Susanna Capelouto.

"We're hoping for a successful night," Carpenter says. "Success is Governor Barnes coming with the most votes. We've planned for a runoff in this race since the very beginning, since Roy started running. Seven candidates in the race... it's difficult to get a majority of the vote, and so we are fully engaged and ready to go tomorrow... start campaigning for August 10th."

Roy Barnes is expected to speak with reporters this hour.
