  Georgia's top elections official is holding the line on plans for May 19 voting, even as the state House speaker continues his push for delay. Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger writes that he doesn't have legal authority to further delay Georgia's presidential primary and other elections originally set for March 24. Those elections were pushed back to May 19. Georgians are also scheduled to vote May 19 for party nominees for one U.S. senator's post, U.S. House members and state lawmakers. House Speaker David Ralston last week called on Raffensperger to delay voting again. He renewed his call in a letter Sunday.
