Former GA Senator Saxby Chambliss has endorsed Karen Handel in the 6th District Congressional race. Chambliss chose to retire from US Senate in 2014. Many feel this was due to moderate votes and willingness to work with Democrats made him too vulnerable for re-election in 2014.
Senator David Perdue, who won Chambliss’ seat in 2014, has endorsed Dan Mooney for the 6th District Congressional race. During Perdue’s campaign he referred to himself as the true outsider in the race. Perdue early on supported Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Handel was one of Perdue’s opponents in the Senate race which Perdue ultimately went on to win. So, if Perdue is a conservative and Saxby was a moderate at best; you pick which candidate will go to D.C. and most emulate the Senator who endorsed them.
