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 nonproliferation 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 fundraiser 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.

Unfortunately we “hired” Obama Joe in his place.
This is an example that shows that many of the GOPe (as was Lugar in good standing before his defeat) are, at their core, progressives.
It’s good that we’re rid of Lugar from the Republican Party.
What sort of fantasy animal is a ‘centrist democrat’? Is that like a unicorn with long ears?
Shocking! Who would have thought this bastion of conservatism would do such a thing? [/s]
Folks in GA best pay attention. This candidate could be dangerous. Many folks in GA have fond memories of her dad, Sam Nunn, due to his strong support of defense spending in the state.
Though he voted against actually using any of the military in Desert Storm.
He was a liberal....she’s a liberal.
No such thing as a centrist dimocrat. Stupak showed us that.
Knew it was the right decision to get rid of this POS.
Dream on Dick. GA is a “RED” state. Dr Paul Broun is the likely next senator and he will stand with Rand and Ted.
Shame on him
As spokesman for POS’s everywhere, I can tell you we resent being compared to Richard Lugar.
