In his nationally syndicated column, Insider Advantage’s Matt Towery takes a look at the Georgia Senate race, and predicts that in order for Michelle Nunn to win, Senator Jason Carter would need to enter the race for Governor. After providing an overview of the Senate race, Towery predicts she won’t be able to win without help.
He then talks about the possibility of Carter entering the Governor’s race. And then this:
[T]he added excitement and momentum from a strong gubernatorial race might, were a weak GOP candidate to emerge as the nominee, help Ms. Nunn capture a seat in the U.S. Senate.
Without Carter in the race, a Nunn victory seems a much bigger longshot. But if a “Carter-Nunn” ticket develops and the two can extricate themselves from a very unpopular Barack Obama in Georgia, anything might happen. Something for GOP pundits to consider in the coming months.
Towery does not think Carter needs to win the governorship for Nunn to win the Senate.
