Michelle Nunn throws - hat in the ring for Senate
Last comment by sebekm 1 year ago.

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Michelle Nunn announced her bid for the U.S. Senate seat in Georgia today.I'm excited to learn more about the candidate and excited about a Democrat throwing their hat in the race

I have posted a few comments from others about her decision to run..

Don Dellinger-I will hold off until I know more on what values and principles you have and how well you will represent me. The problem we have now is we have "Leaders" not "Representatives" in Atlanta and Washington.. We don't need leaders. We need a representative to take our (the majority) principles and values. I am neither a demoRAT nor a republiCANT. I vote on what the person stands for and who I feel can do the job they were sent to do. So, the ball is in your court...Impress me!!!

Chip Smith- Strong values, proven leadership and ready to get things done. Great Georgia Senators have been committed to moderate bi-partisan progress. I think we could use another Nunn in the Senate.

Jack Basset- I am a life-long Republican who is very disappointed with the nature and direction of most Republicans. Our state and country needs moderate representation in all elective offices especially the US Senate. I could easily vote for a Democrat who would not blindly follow the progressive line and work to get our country under control. I've known Sam Nunn for fifty years or so and would support anyone who could come close the the representation he provided in the Senate.

Per Ms. Nunn:

I'm running for Senate because I've seen firsthand the power of individuals to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of those around them.

I'm running for Senate because I believe that America's spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship, when unleashed, can create extraordinary possibilities.

I'm running for the Senate because each generation must build a stronger foundation for our children and grandchildren, and we are failing in that task.

This is GREAT news for Georgians. We will have a legitimate choice now in the Senate Race. Sam Nunn was a Senator's Senator and one of the most moderate voices ever in the Senate.

I am sure Michelle's intellect did not fall far from the Apple Tree. The Nunn family love Georgia and Michelle Nunn would make a great Senator.

Sending in a contribution for her campaign today.

Maybe Zell will come out of retirement. But seriously - Sam Nunn was a good man, and hopefully the acorn doesn't fall too far from the tree. According to her bio at wikipedia.com, Ms. Nunn has sort of a "community organizer" background, but that seems to work for national political candidates nowadays. Here's the portion of the bio I find most encouraging:

"As CEO of Points of Light, Nunn has good relations with the Bush family, as the Points of Light Foundation had derived from President George H. W. Bush and his "thousand points of light" philosophy. Nunn's trip to Texas to meet with George H. W. Bush had been a key element in forming the merger, and Neil Bush, the chair of Points of Light, has characterized Nunn as "a fabulous leader."

See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michelle...

So with an endorsement from a Bushie, perhaps we do have a candidate here who can reach across the aisle and work with the opposition to move our country FORWARD.

We really do need some fabulous leadership.

If nothing else we will see how she does in the inevitable debates. She is truly capable of reaching across the aisle as you note above Sebe.

She does have the political pedigree.

I'm gonna look out for Nunn. I still vote for who shares my core principles and beliefs. So she has a 50/50 chance with me already.

Great Funk! She is NOT an Uber-Liberal Nor is She just a plain ole Liberal.She is of Moderate mind and has the where-with-all to appeal to Independents and those not locked into the yoke of Republican extremism.

The only comment I have on this is we may not know much about Michelle Nunn, but we do know a lot about Jack Kingston. Just because a horse wins the Triple Crown, it don't mean that their colt will, or in this case their filly will.

"She just a plain ole Liberal"

According to the Washington Post, "liberal" = "far left"

I will listen to Ms. Nunn and keep an open mind, but Kingston has a long track record of solid service to this congressional district. We are going to miss his respresentation in the House.
