Via the Savannah Morning News, Walter Jones of the Morris News Service takes a look at the two remaining candidates in Georgia’s Senate race.
In the story about Jack Kingston, the longtime Savannah congressman has a chance to defend his voting record:
Although [Jack Kingston] never had serious opposition after his first legislative race, he says he still likes campaigning. These days, he frequently runs into questions about his years in Congress spawned by negative television ads from runoff opponent David Perdue attacking him primarily for his votes on spending.
“One of the constant concerns you have is that people are too polite when they come up to you. I’d rather have them ask me head on,” he said.
So, here they are, head-on.
For his part, David Perdue talks about his business record and admits he may not have used the best wording while expressing his beliefs.
The biggest misunderstanding of the campaign, according to Perdue, is that he genuinely cares about people.
What he has been out of touch with, undeniably, is the phraseology of conservative activists.
“The vocabulary of politics is just unbelievable,” he says. “You just have to be so careful, I believe, with the terminology.”
Early voting continues this week. Election Day is July 22nd.
