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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
