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.
