Which soft-spoken U.S. Senate candidate — who also served in the Georgia General Assembly — was spotted waiting in queue in Fulton County at 11:20 a.m. to cast his early ballot? We're not naming any names, but trusted sources say this modern-day Atticus Finch doesn't just want to kick the incumbent out of office — he also plans to honor his citizen's duty so he can continue his hard-fought campaign.

My inimitable colleague Scott Henry just returned from Fulton County's early voting location and spotted Martin there. He says the line was two hours long.
