|The insurgent nominee David Perdue takes on Democratic nominee Michelle Nunn for an open seat in Georgia.|
Another campaign to watch for. The Republicans are putting more money in a race that should have been an easy grab. After all, the state was Safe Republican. But alas, I put it in the Toss Up category.
David Perdue, the insurgent candidate beat out three Republican lawmakers. The establishment's choice was Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA). Kingston, the suitable choice for U.S. Senate was sent home after Laura Ingraham got on her bullhorn and demanded voters to dump the chump.
Congressmen Phil Gingrey and Paul Broun, both insurgents were also sent home after they failed to win the spot. They were hoping to be the insurgency's choice for U.S. Senate.
David Perdue (born December 10, 1949) is an American businessman. Perdue was born in Macon, Georgia, and raised in Warner Robins, Georgia. Perdue's parents were both school teachers
He lives with his wife, Bonnie Dunn Perdue, in Sea Island, Georgia. The couple have two sons, David A. Perdue III and Blake Perdue, and three grandchildren.
He is the first cousin of former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue.
Perdue worked for Sara Lee Foods, Haggar Clothing Company, Reebok, Dollar General and Pillowtex. He is betting on his turnaround business expertise. This guy kind of reminds me of that perennial loser Mitt Romney.
Now all of sudden, Georgia comes into play. Along comes Michelle Nunn, the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate. She is the daughter of a Sam Nunn, a Democratic titan in the state of Georgia.
Mary Michelle Nunn (born November 16, 1966) is the Democratic Party nominee for U.S. Senate.
Nunn is the CEO of Points of Light, an international nonprofit, nonpartisan organization headquartered in the United States dedicated to engaging more people and resources in solving serious social problems through voluntary service.
She has been an executive for the volunteer service organization since 1990, previously running the predecessor and member organizations Hands On Atlanta, City Cares, and HandsOn Network.
She began volunteering in junior high school. She was born in Macon, Georgia.
She grew up in Washington, DC for a portion of her childhood before moving back to Georgia. Nunn currently lives in the metro Atlanta area.
She is just like Alison Lundergan Grimes. Wants the Democrats' honey but won't take the pot. She like many Democratic nominees in competitive races will distance themselves from President Barack Obama but still wants to have the millions of dollars raised in their bids to retake areas deemed "TOO REPUBLICAN".
If no candidate receives at least 50 percent plus one vote, a runoff will be held between the top two finishers on January 6, 2015, after the 114th Congress has been sworn-in.
They are both trying to win the seat that's been held by Saxby Chambliss, an aging rotten politico.
Chambliss was the guy who pulled that anti-American bullshit on Max Cleland, a double amputee, former Democratic senator who served three tours of duty in Vietnam.
This race is a drag on embattled Republican governor Nathan Deal. He's facing Democratic nominee Jason Carter, the grandson of 39th President Jimmy Carter in a highly watched race for governor.
The Black vote is key in this race. There's six cities in Georgia that are minority majorities. Nunn, Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama have been actively campaign for early voting.
President Barack Obama stayed out of the race. He knows he's a drag on the Democrats right now.
Who's going to Washington, DC this election?
Will there be a run-off in this race?
Certainly a run off was good for Chambliss in 2008 when he was given the endorsements of insurgents and that stupid former Alaskan governor.
Here's their debate. They also debate a lunatic fringe from the Libertarian Party. This was filmed by a Perdue supporter.
