Thanks Ray - You Gave It A Great Shot!

Unfortunately Ray McKinney's bid for Congress in Georgia's 12th District came to an end last night as he was defeated in the Primary by John Stone. He did very well considering he was running against a big money establishment candidate. Here are the actual results:

John Stone - 56.7%
Ray McKinney - 31.9%
Ben Crystal 11.4%

McKinney did have a significant amount of grassroots support and he did end up winning the vote in Effingham, Montgomery, & Toombs Counties. Big money wins again and I see little chance of Stone's ability to win over the 12th District in November.

Thanks for fighting the good fight Ray. I'm sorry I could not do more for ya. God's speed to you and best of luck with your future endeavors!
