November 6, 2002

 (Atlanta-AP) -- Republicans stunned the top two Democrats on the ballot in Georgia, a state dominated by that party since Reconstruction.

Representative Saxby Chambliss, forced into the Senate race when Democrats redrew his congressional seat, unseated Senator Max Cleland.

Sonny Perdue, a party-switcher best known for leading Georgia's disastrous decision to deregulate the natural gas market, shocked Governor Barnes to become the state's first Republican governor since 1872.

Even House Speaker Tom Murphy, the longest-serving legislative officer in the nation, trails a GOP challenger. Democrats also lost their bid to regain a majority of the seats in Congress on a day marred by rain and marked by the debut of a new electronic voting system.
