Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, one of about a half-dozen Republicans running in the Peach States open Senate contest, will hit the airwaves Monday with a new ad that prominently features former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
The 30-second ad, which is narrated with audio from the April event where Palin endorsed Handel, will air statewide on cable and broadcast, according to Handels campaign.
You know her background, you know her record, the conservative who has walked the walk cutting budgets, Palin says of Handel in the ad.
Among the other top Republicans in the crowded field are three members of Congress and a businessman. They will all compete in a May 20 primary. If no candidate garners more than 50 percent of the vote, the race will head to a July 22 runoff.
Whoever emerges from the Republican field will likely face Democrat Michelle Nunn, the former head of the Points of Light Foundation and daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn.
The race is rated Republican Favored by Rothenberg Political Report/Roll Call.
I’d vote for her if I could .
The OFA troll commentators are going APE SH*T over there. Take a look! Must be scared.
Then she lost the run-off to Nathan Deal.
I voted for Handel in 2010 in the primary. She would have been better than Raw Deal but we need someone much more conservative this time around in the Senate. Paul Broun is the only candidate that will make a difference for GA in DC.
Do you think that every endorsement she makes wins? Her stats are actually between 70 and 90%, depending on who is doing the counting. That’s better than almost anyone else, but no one can win every contest.
I like Sarah Palin but I do not like her choice for Georgia’s next United States Senator. Sarah didn’t endorse the most conservative candidate in the race; she just endorsed the girl. Now that Karen Handel has shown her catty side toward David Perdue, I really don’t want six plus years of that.
I’ve been in the hospital. Do you have any links to this “cattiness” you’re describing?
If she’s good enough for Sarah, she’s .... oh... but, but wait..... Didn’t GOP candidate David Perdue say that she shouldn’t serve because she is just a High School graduate?
I don't have a link but heard several Atlanta news reports about Handel's rejection of David Perdue's apology for alluding to her lack of a college degree. Instead of graciously accepting the apology as most men would have done almost instinctively, Karen Handel chose to be snippy -- saying that Perdue owes an apology to all Georgians who didn't graduate from college. Meeeow! Bossy chick, not very senatorial.
"I mean, theres a high school graduate in this race, OK? Im sorry, but these issues are so much broader, so complex. Theres only one candidate in this race thats ever lived outside the United States. How can you bring value to a debate about the economy unless you have any understanding about the free enterprise system and how what it takes to compete in the global economy?
State Sen. Josh McKoon, R-Columbus:
David Perdues apology reeks of political expediency. Last week when asked about the comments, Davids spokesman said they were just based on facts that are a matter of public record. The next day, the same spokesman said he wasnt aware of a suggestion that an apology was in order. After a week of receiving negative national attention, and being ridiculed as an out-of-touch self-funding elitist who thinks he can buy this election, Davids political consultants have seen the writing on the wall.
Now that Karen Handel has shown her catty side toward David Perdue, I really dont want six plus years of that.
Well, Perdue dude dissed her pretty badly and at the same time showed his arrogant, pompous ass. Who wants six years of that? What does that punk have going for him except his family name. She should have bi**h slapped him and told him to get a handle on his micro-penis syndrome.
Actually, David Perdue is a man of significant accomplishment in business. He has never held political office, but has extensive executive experience and is very impressive in person. Paul Broun is my first choice, and Perdue is now my second.
The gaffe only hurt Perdue. All the others were helped.
Are you referring to him dissing her for not having a college degree?
So according to you, she doesn’t have a right to defend herself against such chauvinistic assinine inanities or SHE’S the one who is catty?
That’s not catty.
He was in the wrong. Get it straight.
And how did Perdue accomplish his business success?
Which he now wants to uphold from the government side of the equation now?
It seems like you’re the one who has a problem with women.
And no problem with men who move back and forth between business and public office and help themselves on both sides of the equation.
