    I will assume this David Perdue is the cousin of Sonny Perdue who has been mentioned before?

      That’s him. Either he lacks common sense or some consultant specializes in hypnosis. Nobody’s jumping from 1% into a run-off.

        Too early to tell. A major indicator will be how much money cash he has on hand in about a year. If you start out with no name ID and have no money, then it gets pretty difficult.

        If you’re a non-poltician, whose isn’t a celebrity, you’ve got to start somewhere. Otherwise, rich businessmen, with no political experience, such as Jon Corizine and Michael Bloomberg, couldn’t buy themselves positions.

        • tdk790 says:

          You’re not wrong. But do you know how much it cost to buy themselves those seats?

          Jon Corzine: $62 million
          Michael Bloomberg: $73 million

  3. NorthGAGOP says:

    Did Price announce that he is not running? I seen that he maybe having second thoughts, but I haven’t seen that he dropped out. Why was he not in the poll?

  4. Joshua Morris says:

    So historically, this pretty much removes any possibility that Gingrey wins, right?
