Karen Handel endorses Jack Kingston for U.S. Senate | Online Athens

ATLANTA | Jack Kingston and Karen Handel announced Wednesday that they are putting the criticism of recent months behind them and are now on the same side in working to defeat Democrat Michelle Nunn and take Republican control of the U.S. Senate.

Handel’s endorsement of Kingston for U.S. Senate came the same day the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announced it is airing television ads on his behalf featuring University of Georgia football legend Herschel Walker.

Handel, who came in third behind Kingston and frontrunner David Perdue, said she didn’t know Kingston well before the campaign, but had grown to admire him for his integrity and fighting spirit. Plus, she was impressed that the First District he has represented for 22 years in Congress turned out heavily to give him 74 percent of the May 20 vote ‑ a margin most observers say cost Handel a spot in the Republican runoff for Senate.

“That is one outstanding job-approval rating,” she said.
