Listening to major media, one would think Michelle Nunn, daughter of former US Senator, Sam Nunn (1972-1996), is the only Democratic candidate for retiring senator Saxby Chambliss's seat. There are several other candidates in the field, although it is true none of them has the nepotistic pedigree of Michelle.
I've now lived in south Georgia for fifteen years. Along with seven years in the Atlanta area, I've lived in Georgia longer than the state I grew up, Michigan.It has long been a truism in Georgia that counties outside the Atlanta metro area get the short end of the stick when it comes to state politics and I can attest to that fact.
I am active in my local Democratic Party. Recently, we had the pleasure of two other candidates making the trek down here to present their case to the local party and citizens as to why they should be US Senator, Steen Miles and Dr Branko Radulovachi. I'm not holding my breath that Michelle Nunn will grace us with her presence.
At this moment, I will vote for Steen Miles as the best Democratic candidate for Georgia US Senator.
However, if Michelle Nunn wins the primary, you better believe I will vote for her over Jack Kingston, whom I expect to win the Republican nomination, and happens to be. my former congressman before the 2012 redistricting.
