Nunn's Uphill Fight Made Easier by Messy GOP Primary

Stu Rothenberg: "The recent entry of Michelle Nunn into the Georgia Senate race is good news for national and state Democrats who hope to swipe a normally Republican Senate seat in the Deep South... Nunn has potential, and the Republican primary could increase her opportunities, both because of its bitterness and potential for producing a seriously flawed nominee."

"But there is a heavy burden of proof on Nunn to show that she can win -- or, rather, that Republicans are throwing the contest away. She will need every break to go her way to have any kind of real chance. Given that, we are moving this race from Safe Republican to Republican Favored. It's certainly worth watching, though it doesn't yet merit some of the early hype that it has received."
