Since Friday seems to be the day to talk about the U.S. Senate race, here are two related items from this morning’s Daily (subscribe here).
Polls Are For Strippers And Cross Country Skiers. Georgia Democrats appear to be falling for the questionable internal DSCC poll showing Michelle Nunn neck and neck with Jack Kingston. Even the Wall Street Journal has even fallen for it, citing the poll and Barrow’s decision to stay out of the Senate race as “Good News for Georgia Democrats.” Of course, it may end up working well for the Dems, Nunn could win and Barrow may retain his Congressional seat. Not everyone is convinced Nunn will make a great candidate. Tom Crawford of the Georgia Report wrote in February that Nunn was not qualified to be a Senator and he couldn’t understand why people were floating her name. Ouch.
There Shall Be Candidates And Rumors Of Candidates. Democrats are suggesting alternatives to Nunn, who some consider ‘too liberal’ to win. Anthony Kries suggests State Rep. Scott Holcomb could appeal to moderates better than Nunn. Holcomb himself floated his name out last week. Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall likes Congressman John Lewis for the job.
