Anyone following the election this year knows that former Democrat Senator Sam Nunn’s daughter Michelle is running for the seat being vacated by Senator Saxby Chamblis (R-GA). Her Republican opponent is David Perdue, the former CEO of Dollar General. The race is tight, especially with the Libertarians having a good showing. Perdue came out recently claiming that while Michelle Nunn ran a charity that had merged with another charity with close ties to the Bush family, that money got funneled to terrorism. That has been shown false and had Neil Bush, George H.W. Bush to speak for her. Also, she is running, even though Harry Reid asked her not to.

Former Senator Nunn was interviewed about the race and had strong words. Here, via the Atlanta Journal Constitution, is Sam Nunn’s response to the David Perdue ad about the terrorism connections.

Neil Bush said this kind of smear for political gain, at the expense of the Points of Light organization and all its volunteers, is shameful. I don’t think there’s anything more powerful than that. I don’t think there’s anything I can add to that.

It’s shameful. Particularly when you know that everybody in the opposition campaign knows that that’s not true. It’s not like they believe it. There’s too much these days of anything that works, regardless of what lines it crosses. I think the whole approach in television, and 30-second ads – I sure the Supreme Court would overrule legislation that said no more 30-second ads, but if I were up there, I’d give it a shot.

As for her being a complete ally of Harry Reid, here is what Nunn said.

Michelle Nunn’s father also said his daughter, the Democratic nominee for Senate, has little obligation to support Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., should Democrats maintain the chamber in November – given that Reid, in the spring of 2013, asked her not to run for Sam Nunn’s old seat.

“They said they had their eye on another candidate,” Sam Nunn said. Presumably, that other candidate would have been U.S. Rep. John Barrow, D-Augusta, whom many Democrats were attempting to lure into the contest at the time.

Michelle Nunn, her father said, rejected the advice to withdraw. Barrow declined to enter the race.

David Perdue has got the support of President George H.W. Bush, while his son Neil is speaking against Perdue’s actions. The Nunn campaign is also using the lawsuit against Dollar General, while Purdue was CEO, very effectively. The court found that women were being paid less than men, which is helping keep the Democrat base firmly with her.

People in the state of Georgia have a race of it. The Democrat base is strong behind Nunn, the Republicans are questioning why they selected Perdue of Representative Jack Kingston and the Libertarian Party is able to get some votes that could hurt the Republicans more. The race could be a close one, with Perdue having to do something noticeably good before November.
