Michelle Nunn actively preparing for Senate campaign in Georgia – The Hill’s Ballot Box

Businesswoman Michele Nunn is actively preparing for a Senate campaign in Georgia and Democrats there expect an announcement early this summer, according to two sources with knowledge of the plans.

“I don’t think she’ll make an announcement until the beginning of the summer, mid-June or early July. There’s no urgency and she has to resolve some things with the charity [Nunn is in charge of]. But she is running,” said one source close to Nunn, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk candidly about private discussions.

Another senior Georgia Democrat said the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee has called a few key Democrats in the state in recent days to tell them Nunn, the daughter of former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), was definitely running for the seat.

While plans could stil lchange, both sources say Nunn intends to wait until after a major early June event being hosted by her charitable organization, Points of Light, to make any announcement.

“A lot of it relates to extracting herself from the charity. We know she’s going to make a formal announcement,” said the source.

Nunn has emerged as Democrats’ top choice for the seat in recent weeks, and began moving towards a run shortly after Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) announced he’d retire at the end of his term.
