Tag: 2014 Senate Race
Even as the pieces fall into their expected places for next year’s U.S. Senate race, wild cards are emerging. This morning, it was some guy named David Perdue, a business executive who also happens to be the cousin of a certain former Georgia governor. The ex-CEO of Dollar General–as in, “Stores”–Perdue hasn’t yet officially jumped in, but announced his plan to spend the next several weeks “exploring” his chances.
U.S. Rep. John Barrow’s announcement this week that he won’t run for the retiring Saxby Chambliss’ Senate seat is seen pretty much everywhere as an enormous setback for Georgia Democrats.
When Sen. Saxby Chambliss announced in January that he would retire after his term ended next year, he opened the floodgates on a mad scramble for higher position that will undoubtedly continue into 2014 as congressmen vie for the upper chamber, state lawmakers strive for Congress and local officials everywhere fight to capture all those empty seats.
