It's primary runoff time. Don't forget your Truth-O-Meter

Are you voting in Tuesday's runoff election? Don't forget your Truth-O-Meter. Runoffs can be ugly, and this political season is no exception. In the 19 days since the primary, PolitiFact Georgia has debunked enough attacks to fill an entire election season.  In the Republican gubernatorial runoff alone, we've covered attacks on abortion, negative campaigning, and one candidate's voting record from 17 years ago.

We've written items on four elections for statewide office in the past two months: the Republican race for governor, the Democratic race for secretary of state, the Republican race for attorney general, and the Republican race for commissioner of insurance.
