Former Congressman (and CL columnist) Bob Barr announced yesterday he's running for President as a Libertarian.
Barr's not going to win, but if the former Republican Congressman ends up on the ballot in Georgia, he could peel away enough voters from McCain to tip Georgia's 15 Electoral College votes to Obama.
The last time a Democrat won Georgia's Electoral College votes was 1992. That year, then Gov. Bill Clinton squeaked by then-President George H.W. Bush with 43.6 percent of Georgia's popular vote, compared to Bush's 43 percent.
Sharing Georgia's ballot with Bush and Clinton that year was populist billionaire H. Ross Perot, who nabbed 13.4 percent of Georgia's popular vote.
