Polls have closed in the run-off election between Georgia Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss and Democratic challenger Jim Martin, and results are beginning to come in.

With two percent of precincts reporting, the Georgia secretary of state's Web site shows Chambliss leading by a wide margin. As of this post, Chambliss had 69.1 percent of the vote compared to Martin's 30.1 percent.

Martin might not be able to pull off a win, but the numbers will undoubtedly get closer as the night progresses -- Democratic strongholds like DeKalb County, which went 76-21 for Martin on Election Day, and Fulton County, which broke 63-34 for Martin, haven't reported any results yet.
