Karen Handel slams Michelle Nunn over Syria strike support | Political Insider | www.ajc.com

In what could be the first campaign ad in the nation using Syria as a centerpiece, Republican Senate candidate Karen Handel ripped Democrat Michelle Nunn for supporting a military strike against Bashar Assad’s regime.

In the 60-second radio spot, the former Georgia Secretary of State claims President Barack Obama “failed to make the case” for attacking Syria over the use of chemical weapons and that Nunn wouldn’t be an independent voice if elected. Obama this week delayed a Congressional vote on a strike in hopes of working out a diplomatic solution.

Handel is one of seven Republicans running to succeed retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss, and Nunn is the perceived front-runner in a field of several Democrats vying for the nomination.
