The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by [[Saxby Chambliss]] (R). Chambliss was first elected in 2002. On January 25, 2013, Chambliss announced that he was retiring at the end of his current term and would not seek re-election in 2014. He cited gridlock in Congress and a lack of leadership from the White House as being the main reasons for his retirement. He denied rumors that his retirement was based on any potential primary challenges.<ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2013/01/25/report-saxby-chambliss-retiring-in-2014/ ''Washington Post'' "Saxby Chambliss retiring in 2014," January 25, 2013]</ref>

A federal judge on July 11, 2013 ordered the state of [[Georgia]] to move its primary in 2014 from mid-July to June 3, so that overseas voters have sufficient time to get ballots in case there are any runoffs, as required by federal law. Runoff primary elections would still take place on August 6, 2013.<ref>[http://www.ajc.com/weblogs/political-insider/2013/jul/12/your-daily-jolt-federal-order-georgias-2014-primar/ ''Atlanta Journal Constitution'' "Your daily jolt: By federal order, Georgia's 2014 primary will be earliest in state history" Accessed July 15, 2013]</ref>

===Race background===
 +
{{Gasenbackground2014}}
 +
===Primary to watch===
 +
The primary for the open seat was highlighted as one of the top five primaries to watch in 2014. The crowded [[Republican]] field already included [[U.S. House|Reps.]] [[Paul Broun]], [[Phil Gingrey]] and [[Jack Kingston]], businessman [[David Perdue]] and former [[Georgia Secretary of State|secretary of state]] [[Karen Handel]], as of December 2013. Georgia law dictates that if no candidate receives a majority of the votes, the top two candidates advance to a runoff primary.<ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2013/11/08/the-fixs-top-10-senate-races-of-2014-5/ ''Washington Post,'' "The Fix’s top 10 Senate races of 2014," accessed December 10, 2013]</ref>
 +
===Issues===
 +
====Government shutdown====
 +
:: ''See also: [[United States budget debate, 2013]]''
 +
{{Support vote}} During the shutdown in October 2013, the [[United States Senate|Senate]] rejected, down party lines, every House-originated bill that stripped the budget of funding for the Affordable Care Act. A deal was reached late on October 16, 2013, just hours before the debt ceiling deadline. The bill to reopen the government, H.R. 2775, lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by [[United States Senate|Senate Democrats]] was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.<ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/house-effort-to-end-fiscal-crisis-collapses-leaving-senate-to-forge-last-minute-solution/2013/10/16/1e8bb150-364d-11e3-be86-6aeaa439845b_story_1.html ''The Washington Post'', "Reid, McConnell propose bipartisan Senate bill to end shutdown, extend borrowing," accessed October 16, 2013]</ref> The final vote on H.R. 2775 was 81-18, with all 18 votes against the bill from [[Republican]] members. [[Saxby Chambliss]] voted with the [[Democratic Party]] for the bill.<ref>[http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=113&session=1&vote=00219#top ''Senate.gov,'' "H.R. 2775 As Amended," accessed October 31, 2013]</ref>
 +
 
 +
====Members of campaign staff resign====
 +
Four members of [[Phil Gingrey]]'s campaign staff resigned on November 28, 2013.<ref name="resign">[http://atr.rollcall.com/major-staff-turnover-on-gingrey-senate-campaign/ ''Roll Call,'' "Major Staff Turnover on Gingrey’s Senate Campaign," accessed November 20, 2013]</ref> General consultant Chip Lake, campaign manager John Porter, political director David Allen and grass-roots coordinator Justin Tomczak all stepped down from the campaign.<ref name="resign"/>
 +
 
 +
General consultant Chip Lake said in a statement, “I have nothing but respect for [[Phil Gingrey]]. I wish him nothing but the best, but when you reach that point in a campaign where you’re at the crossroads, something’s got to give. When I left him yesterday I wished him the best and told him I thought it was very important for him to finish out this campaign the way that’s most comfortable for him...We just had some disagreements on overall campaign vision and structure, and everything kind of falls under that umbrella. When that happens, you try to work it out, and when you can’t work it out, you sit down and have difficult discussions on how to move forward.”<ref name="resign"/>

Races to watch in Georgia

U.S. Congress


See also: United States Senate elections in Georgia, 2014

With the retirement of Sen. Saxby Chambliss leaving the seat open, a tough Republican primary could have led to an opening for a strong Democrat to make the race, historically a safe Republican seat, competitive.


Georgia State Legislature

U.S. Senate elections in Georgia

See also: United States Senate elections in Georgia, 2014 and United States Senate elections, 2014

Voters in Georgia will elect one member to the U.S. Senate in the election on November 4, 2014. Georgia is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3] The election will fill the Senate seat currently held by Saxby Chambliss (R). Chambliss was first elected in 2002. On January 25, 2013, Chambliss announced that he was retiring at the end of his current term and would not seek re-election in 2014. He cited gridlock in Congress and a lack of leadership from the White House as being the main reasons for his retirement. He denied rumors that his retirement was based on any potential primary challenges.[4]

A federal judge on July 11, 2013 ordered the state of Georgia to move its primary in 2014 from mid-July to June 3, so that overseas voters have sufficient time to get ballots in case there are any runoffs, as required by federal law. Runoff primary elections would still take place on August 6, 2013.[5]

Candidates

Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.

Race background

Primary to watch

The primary for the open seat was highlighted as one of the top five primaries to watch in 2014. The crowded Republican field already included Reps. Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey and Jack Kingston, businessman David Perdue and former secretary of state Karen Handel, as of December 2013. Georgia law dictates that if no candidate receives a majority of the votes, the top two candidates advance to a runoff primary.[33]

Issues

Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "Yes" During the shutdown in October 2013, the Senate rejected, down party lines, every House-originated bill that stripped the budget of funding for the Affordable Care Act. A deal was reached late on October 16, 2013, just hours before the debt ceiling deadline. The bill to reopen the government, H.R. 2775, lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[34] The final vote on H.R. 2775 was 81-18, with all 18 votes against the bill from Republican members. Saxby Chambliss voted with the Democratic Party for the bill.[35]

Members of campaign staff resign

Four members of Phil Gingrey's campaign staff resigned on November 28, 2013.[36] General consultant Chip Lake, campaign manager John Porter, political director David Allen and grass-roots coordinator Justin Tomczak all stepped down from the campaign.[36]

General consultant Chip Lake said in a statement, “I have nothing but respect for Phil Gingrey. I wish him nothing but the best, but when you reach that point in a campaign where you’re at the crossroads, something’s got to give. When I left him yesterday I wished him the best and told him I thought it was very important for him to finish out this campaign the way that’s most comfortable for him...We just had some disagreements on overall campaign vision and structure, and everything kind of falls under that umbrella. When that happens, you try to work it out, and when you can’t work it out, you sit down and have difficult discussions on how to move forward.”[36]

The 2014 U.S. House of Representatives elections in Georgia will take place on November 4, 2014. Voters will elect 14 candidates to serve in the U.S. House, one from each of the state's 14 congressional districts.

Georgia is one of 14 states that uses an open primary system, in which registered voters do not have to be members of a party to vote in that party's primary.[1][2][3]

A federal judge on July 11, 2013 ordered the state of Georgia to move its primary in 2014 from mid-July to June 3, so that overseas voters have sufficient time to get ballots in case there are any runoffs, as required by federal law. Runoff primary elections would still take place on August 6, 2013.[37]
