Washington Post top 10 races

According to an analysis by The Washington Post, the U.S. Senate election in Georgia is considered one of the top 10 Senate races of 2014 as of December 2013. Michelle Nunn had a strong fundraising run in the third quarter of 2013.[10]

Endorsements

EMILY’s List, the pro-abortion-rights Democratic women’s group, said August 26, 2013, it is endorsing Nunn for the open Georgia Senate seat.[11] The group’s president, Stephanie Schriock, said Nunn could help Democrats hold the Senate by winning in the red-leaning state, where a crowded field of candidates is vying for the Republican nomination.[11]

“She’s tied for the lead in the polls in one of our only chances to win a GOP Senate seat,” Schriock said in a fundraising email to supporters. “It’s important that we elect a Democratic woman like Michelle Nunn, but it’s just as important that we keep her right-wing, extremist opponents out of the Senate.”[11]
