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.

I honestly don’t trust Kingston, Nunn or Perdue to vote intelligently on foreign policy matters. I’ll be voting for Amanda Swafford.

I can’t vote for more of the same, which is a vote for Kingston. He and his fellow eunuch’s in DC have empowered and FUNDED the actions of the Obama administration. It’s telling the Chamber of Commerce, a huge supporter of Amnesty and unbridled immigration, is supporting Kingston. They knew he will be their Open Border Ally once the election is done.

I’m going to take my chances by voting for Perdue.

The worst TV ads are Kingston’ s, like the Obama impersonator. The same old same endorsements, a blow it up vs. Fix it approach. Nah.

I’ll opt for a leap of faith with Perdue.
