The Most Popular Georgia County (tonight)

Give me this county, or give me death.

When The New York Times identifies Henry County as the one to watch in Georgia tonight as election results come in, you take it seriously. When the conservative outlet Breitbart, quoting the NYT, says the same -- well, that's one popular county.

Henry County is named after Patrick Henry, of the "give me liberty, or give me death" fame. While the slogan is a Tea Party favorite, as The NYT story explains, the county has seen major demographic changes in the last decade or so and it's an interesting one to watch if you want a sense of how the election is going in Georgia, and Michelle's Nunn's chances as the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
