The winner of the GOP nomination for Georgia’s open U.S. Senate seat touts himself as a political outsider. But businessman David Perdue now needs the political know-how and network of career politicians to beat Democrat Michelle Nunn in the general election.
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.
After nine weeks of intense, often personal campaigning, Georgia's primary runoff election is now over. In the biggest race, businessman David Perdue defeated 1st District congressman Jack Kingston for the republican nomination for U.S. Senate. While Kingston did well in southern and coastal counties, Perdue prevailed in the Atlanta suburbs and North Georgia.
