The first poll in the U.S. Senate runoff between U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston and David Perdue gives the coastal Georgia congressman an edge.

The AJC is reporting that a Public Policy Polling survey gives Kingston 46 percent over Perdue’s 34 percent.

The poll also shows about 20 percent of voters are undecided in the  July 22 runoff.

Gov. Nathan Deal and state Sen. Jason Carter are neck and neck, at 43 percent each. Libertarian Andrew Hunt is polling at 7 percent.

If the libertarian does indeed get 7%, it would guarantee a runoff.

In a sense, the millions of dollars Perdue personally financed worked as a large campaign contribution to Kingston as it only worked to sap Karen Handel’s support in metro Atlanta enough to knock her out of the runoff.

Why did this guy run again?
