Well placed source says Michelle Nunn, daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn, considering a run in the Democratic primary for Senate.#gapol— Lori Geary (@lorigeary) February 5, 2013
This may very well be the Republican version of “Kelly Loeffler would make a great candidate,” which is to say a daydream by political
opportunists consultants and hobbyists.
But it should give Republicans pause to consider what a Nunn candidacy would bring to the table for Democrats.
- A recognizable name statewide
- Likely connections to well-heeled Atlantans through her work with Hands On Atlanta
- Likely connections to wells of DC political money through her father, former United States Senator Sam Nunn
- No real political history, a tabula rasa.
Of course the Democratic Party primary is likely to push her far to the left, enough to damage a candidate for the General Election.
Unless…as Jim Galloway tells it:
State Democratic Party Chairman Mike Berlon said Tuesday that he expects the party to settle on a single candidate within the next four to six weeks.
