Ga. Senate candidates stump in GOP stronghold

BUFORD, Ga. – GOP candidates in Georgia’s fiercely contested Senate race are making their final push toward Tuesday’s primary, appealing for votes in one of the country’s most solidly Republican areas.

Reps. Paul Broun and Jack Kingston and former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel are meeting and greeting the crowd at Saturday’s annual barbecue and fundraiser hosted by Gov. Nathan Deal in northern Georgia. The area is considered the heart of the state GOP and key to a primary win on Tuesday.

Other Republican candidates are Rep. Phil Gingrey and former Dollar General CEO David Perdue.

Republicans need to gain six seats in November’s election to win control of the Senate and can’t afford to lose the one retiring GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss now holds.
