Debbie Dooley, co-founder of the Atlanta Tea Party, sets out signs and waits for returns where T-SPLOST opposition groups gather for a election night watch at Hudson Grille in Atlanta on Tuesday, July 31, 2012. Gov. Nathan Deal and Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed are making an 11th-hour push to Georgia voters to approve the transportation tax referendum on Tuesday's primary ballot.
