  •  Does look like a Perdue/Kingston run-off (0+ / 0-)

    Unless the revenue gaffe scrambles things.

    •  Wouldn't rule Handel out (0+ / 0-)

      And with the continued high number of undecideds, who knows.

        because my gut feeling is that he would have a better shot of beating Perdue than Handel.

        •  From what I know... (1+ / 0-)

          Kingston would be the easiest candidate to beat out of the three (Handel and Perdue)
          How many third parties are on the ballot for the general election, anyone know? I assume a Libertarian will be on.
          I'd put Georgia as toss up-to lean GOP (given the primary will only worsen the GOP candidates and that Nunn is raising a lot more money) but given that Nunn has to win 50+1 in order to avoid a run off Id say her chances go down two notches.

          We only think nothing goes without saying.

          •  Yeah Handel is the one I'd most like to avoid (0+ / 0-)

            She doesn't have $$, but that won't be an issue in the Fall. She just seems to have no real vulnerabilities of the magnitude needed to win a seat in a red state.

            •  I'd most prefer to avoid Perdue (0+ / 0-)

              But Handel is #2 on my list. I don't think we need the Republican candidate to be particularly vulnerable, just not as good as Nunn. None of them are really as good as her, but Perdue and Handel are uniquely capable of nullifying Nunn's two biggest advantages: Perdue with his name vs Nunn's name, and Handel with her lady parts.

              It appears, at least based on early fundraising, that Nunn will lead in the fundraising no matter who wins in July. Still, it's best to completely bury the opposition. I think we see that scenario only in a Broun or Gingrey win. People will be hesitant to toss money at perceived lost causes, real or imagined.

    •  We will see (0+ / 0-)

      Handel and her groups might hit Perdue (seems to be their target) one last time to see if she can get enough votes away from Broun and Gingrey voters to pull ahead of Kingston.

      So, how come Broun fizzled out?

        Or lack thereof.
