GA-09 Special Election Thread

Today's the day when voters go to the polls to elect a new Congressman from my district, GA-09. The candidates running are:

Cardiologist Chris Cates (R)
Former State Rep. Tom Graves (R)
Former State Sen. Lee Hawkins (R)
Retired Neurosurgeon Bert Loftman (R)
Former State Sen. Bill Stephens (R)
State Rep. Bobby Reese (R)
Chickamauga City Councilman Steve Tarvin (R)
Hall County Democratic Party Chairman Mike Freeman (D)
Marketing Exective Eugene Moon (Independent)

I see the election going to a runoff with the results looking like this:

Graves-37%
Hawkins-36%
Stephens-15%
Reese-5%
Tarvin-3%
Loftman-2%
Moon-1%
Cates-1%
Freeman-0%

And the Runoff looking like this:

Graves-57%
Hawkins-43%

What do you think will happen here tonight?

BTW, as an aside, please consider supporting Bert Loftman for this seat. He is the only true Constitutional Conservative in this race.
