Georgia Senate race (Republican primary): Businessman David Perdue – a cousin of former governor Sonny Perdue (R) – was ascendant in this race before making comments about former secretary of state Karen Handel’s lack of a college degree. Handel is now proudly trumpeting Sarah Palin’s endorsement. Meanwhile, the three congressmen in the race — Reps. Jack Kingston, Paul Broun and Phil Gingrey — all voted against Rep. Paul Ryan’s (R) budget this week. It’s a crowded race to the right like we’ve rarely seen. Hoping it gets a little too far to the right is Democrat Michelle Nunn. The primary is May 20.
