Posted on 02/17/2013 7:04:39 AM PST by JohnPDuncan
Harper Polling has just cut loose its first poll in Georgias 2014 race for U.S. Senate, showing three Republican members of Congress in a tight bunch:
In the Republican primary election for the open seat of Senator Saxby Chambliss, the race is wide open. The field is stacked with Members of Congress. In a state with 14 congressional districts, a Congressmans statewide name identification is low and his support is confined early on to his district. However, if the field has 6 credible candidates, 35% could win the primary.
Congressmen Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, Tom Price, and Jack Kingston are bunched in a pack at 19%, 18%, 17% and 13% respectively. The buzz-worthy candidates of state insiders, [state Sen.] Ross Tolleson and [Atlanta Dream co-owner] Kelly Loefler, have no name identification and therefore no support at this stage.
Remember that only Broun is an announced candidate.

Dr.Tom Price (R), Region 6, would be my vote. He’s the most conservative of the group, by far.
Broun is better. (Also an MD) :-)
Things will change over time. Tea party and grassroots conservatives are in charge now and they know it and there’s little they can do to stop it when all these people turn up to GOP meetings in large numbers. This is why it’s important to STAY engaged and not follow these people who say give up on the party.
All these longtime congressman running for senate means they have to retire their house seats too so more opportunities to take seats for the grassroots.
I agree on TN but those two are entrenched. I dont think Alexender can be got rid of but surely his successor will be a lot better and we need to make sure we have capable people lined up and ready.
The easiest incumbent to knock off in 2014 will be Lindsey Graham. There is talk of a state senator named Bright will take him on and be the alternative anti-Graham vote. Club for Growth and outside groups have said they will fund a capable challenger so there’s a possibility he is the one who goes down.
PLEASE make sure the person listens to Rush a couple hours a week and won’t get “gotcha’d” by the MSM.
It’s not rocket science.
He’s outspoken but not stupid. He regularly calls Obama a socialist which is just the truth. I’ll post some of his recent remarks in a bit.. look out for them
Paul Broun or Tom Price either one is fine with me. I might go with Broun over Price just because he’s a hair on fire radical and we need more like that in the Senate and House.
Screw entrenched, nobody is beyond our reach. I think we have a very good shot at bumping Cochran off in Mississippi, and maybe Johanns in Nebraska. Both were prepared to vote YES on Chuck the Schumck Hagel.
Graham is pretty much toast. All we have to do is run him jumping to attention for Barry’s state of the union. Right there with McLame doing the shamnesty shake.
You’re right about the house seats. I don’t think we’re in much danger of losing the house, so we should take every opportunity to get the most conservative Tea Partiers into those seats.
We need more outspoken people in the Senate, the House has quite a lot but the senate has too many dinosaurs. This is a great opportunity to take a seat!
Anyway, it’s a long way off and will be an interesting campaign. We need to keep Rove out. Is there any chance in making it a convention instead of a primary election so establishment outsiders can be kept away?
The congressmen who jump in will be retiring their seats too. I hear Bob Barr might be interested in running again and he was a firebrand in the House.
