Republicans in Georgia have been fighting for months, but it’s finally time for them to choose their nominee for the senate run this fall. From the New York Times:
Georgia Republicans on Tuesday will finally pick a Senate nominee, choosing between Jack Kingston, an 11-term congressman, and David Perdue, a former chief executive of Dollar General, in a runoff election.
Mr. Perdue finished first among seven contenders in the Republican primary in May, with 30.6 percent of the vote — very likely helped by his name recognition as the cousin of the former Georgia governor Sonny Perdue — and Mr. Kingston took second, with 25.8 percent. The winner will go on in the general election to face the Democrat Michelle Nunn, a former chief executive of the Points of Light volunteer group and the daughter of Sam Nunn, the former Georgia senator.
