GA Repubs ready to choose nominee

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.
