Isakson Warns Pefect Storm Could Flip Senate Seat

Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) "said the mixture of a trending-purple state and a bloody GOP primary could hinder the party's ability next year to hold the Georgia Senate seat of his retiring colleague," Roll Call reports.

Said Isakson: "It should be a Republican seat, but there's a perfect storm that could happen that could make that challenging. So if the Republican party were to make a mistake in its nominating process, as happened in a couple of states in the last cycle then you run the risk of the Democrats having an unchallenged quality opponent in their primary and a bloody Republican -- beaten up by other Republicans as well as Harry Reid -- coming into a race where they are behind in money."
