Truth-O-Meter stuck on Half True:

The Truth-O-Meter spent much of the past week stuck on Half True.

Hope as we might that politicians and pundits would be beacons of truth, they struggled to get things right on everything from mammograms to the federal budget.

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.

Even Trig, former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin's toddler son, became a point of contention in that race.

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.

Here's how they fared against the Truth-O-Meter.
