McCain leads in Ga. but uncounted votes delay call

ATLANTA (AP) - John McCain has already conceded the presidency
to Barack Obama, but the reliably Republican state of Georgia has
yet to tally an unknown number of early votes from heavily populated counties.

That has complicated the process of awarding the state's 15 electoral votes.

Since the Georgia's Secretary of State's office would not estimate how many votes could still be pending, the associated press held off calling Georgia for McCain.

A record 2 million Georgians cast their ballots early.

Georgia's closely watched Senate race was also too close to call
early Wednesday, with incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss leading
Democratic challenger Jim Martin. With a third-party candidate also
on the ballot, Chambliss needs a majority to avoid a runoff.
