In a political upset, Congressman Jack Kingston lost the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate Tuesday night to millionaire businessman David Perdue. The Savannah representative gave up the seat he’s held in Congress for 22 years to run for U.S. Senate in a bid to help the GOP win back control of that chamber. What’s more, he won the backing of nearly all prominent Republicans in Georgia. But it wasn’t enough to stem a tide of anti-Washington fervor that’s tarred Republicans as much as Democrats. Kingston said the race is about more than who represents Georgia in the Senate.
