Tea party group backs Broun in Georgia Senate race

National GOP groups are indeed wary of Broun, worrying that he could be the kind of candidate that could make the race winnable for Nunn. Some in the GOP establishment have compared him to former congressman Todd Akin, who lost an open Senate race in Missouri in 2012 after saying “legitimate rape” rarely leads to pregnancy.

The Madison Project says the comparison is unfounded.

“The establishment, who views him as the consummate threat of the election cycle, likes to dub him as ‘the next Todd Akin,’” the group will say. “‘The reality is that Paul Broun has run the most effective and on-message campaign of any of the primary candidates.”
