  •  Are you kidding? (6+ / 0-)

    Newt Gingrich would be the best possible candidate to face if we had Cleland, Barrow, Barnes, or Baker.

      He's not going to run, so that's neither here nor there. I doubt Barrow takes the plunge either, but his second tweet is interesting walk back.

        Cleland has still be active in Democratic politics (he recently raised money for Warren), so I wouldn't be shocked if he ran. And like someone said above, he'd be far and away our best candidate.

    •  I think you are understimating Gingrich (1+ / 0-)

      Look at Cain, I would tell Gingrich is stronger than Cain in Georgia, like he was stronger than Cain in the Republican primary for 2012.

      If Cain was leading Chambliss for this race I can imagine perfectly Gingrich leading both.

      I have not a good oppinion about him, but the Republicans vote him.

      •  Oh good (0+ / 0-)

        Gingrich is rejecting a bid. Better. Their last first level potential candidate is S Perdue.

      •  no, he's a clown, (1+ / 0-)

        with the statements he's made we could bring his approval rating down to the teens.
