And of course the GOP started crying like babies:Vice President Biden landed in Atlanta Tuesday morning and attended a fundraiser for Democratic Senate contender Michelle Nunn in the afternoon.
"It’s cold," Biden said as he got off the plane. according to a White House pool report. "Where’s the warm air?"
Biden attended at 1 p.m. fundraiser for Nunn at a home in Buckhead. According to a subsequent pool report, the home belongs to Michael Schulder and Nancy Field, who has given thousands of dollars to Obama and Democratic candidates. - Washington Post, 3/4/14
But Nunn and the Democrats aren't letting the GOP's crying get to them. Nunn's been busy helping others:The Republican National Committee (RNC) gave a response to Vice President Joe Biden's visit in Atlanta today, a brief stopover by the VP to help the Georgia Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn at a local fundraiser.
“After months of lying low and ducking the issues, Democrat Michelle Nunn has finally shown where her true allegiance lies: with the Obama Administration and its liberal agenda of government run health care, higher taxes, and record debt," said RNC spokesman Michael Short. "If the Obama Administration’s agenda is good enough for Michelle Nunn to support it in private, then why isn’t it good enough for her to support it in public?”
Nunn has positioned herself as a centrist, non-political candidate, and therefore hasn't mentioned the Obama Administration much on the campaign trail. - Examiner, 3/4/14
Nunn's playing it right and Biden's help will certainly come in handy. And of course we'll have to see what happens with the crowded GOP primary. By the way, Karen Handel (R. GA) scored a big endorsement:U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn took time off the campaign trail Monday to thank supporters, volunteers and community nonprofits while packing food at the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia.
Nunn, who will qualify for the race later this week, has focused her campaign on three issues: economic development, national debt reduction and education. She said those problems can be solved if states apply the problem-solving tactics used in the nonprofit community.
“I spent 25 years engaging and mobilizing volunteers and have a profound respect and understanding of the extraordinary role that food banks and other nonprofits play in the community,” she said. “During the campaign I want to highlight and demonstrate that if we focus on problem solving and working together we can get things done.”
Nunn is no stranger to nonprofits. Before hitting the campaign trail, she was the CEO of Atlanta-based Points of Light, the world’s leading volunteer organization that aims to harness the efforts of volunteers to solve serious social problems. - Online Athens, 3/3/14
This is what we're up against folks. If you want to get involved or donate to Nunn's campaign, you can do so here:The Susan B. Anthony List is throwing its support to former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel's (R) Senate campaign.
The group supports candidates who oppose abortion rights, mostly endorsing Republican women.
The endorsement could help boost Handel's flagging fundraising in the crowded GOP primary field.
Handel, while at the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research, pushed the group to end funding for Planned Parenthood, a women's health organization that provides abortions. The move triggered a huge public controversy, the group reversed its decision and Handel resigned.
