Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn is getting some cross-party love from former Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.).
Lugar's political action committee, the 19th Star PAC, donated $5,000 to Nunn's Senate campaign in early December, according to the group's latest Federal Election Commission report.
Lugar and Nunn's father, former Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), worked together closely on nuclear non-proliferation issues while both were in the Senate.
This isn't the first time one of Nunn's former GOP colleagues has donated to his daughter -- former Sen. John Warner (R-Va.) also gave $500 to her campaign and attended a fundrasier for her, the Washington Post reported last month.
Nunn, who's running as a centrist, has raised an impressive $3.3 million in the first five months of her Senate campaign. She'll face the winner of a crowded GOP primary that has a number of candidates running for the Tea Party mantle.
She touted the donation as evidence of the bipartisan coalition she's working to build.
"I am immensely honored and grateful for Senator Lugar's generous support in this race. His tenure in U.S. Senate embodied the type of pragmatism and problem-solving Georgians are yearning for in Washington," Nunn said in a statement. "Both in the Senate and in the international community, Senator Lugar's collaborative approach made us safer and moved our country forward. We need more leaders like Senator Lugar not less, and I will strive to follow this legacy in the U.S. Senate."

But when push comes to shove, the establishment IN REALITY believes that electing conservatives is WORSE than electing democrats.
Your GOP PAC donations at work...for the Democrats.
I don't know, but my guess is, probably not.
GA FReeper ping.
That figures. Lugar was a major RINO. They can dream on. Chambliss senate seat will remain firmly in GOP hands and with any luck we are going to elect Dr. Paul Broun a true conservative.
