The Georgia Republican Party has scheduled seven —seven!— Senate debates for the nomination to succeed outgoing Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA). The dates and locations, released Monday, are below:
January 18, 2014 – Adel, Georgia
February 1, 2014 – Kennesaw, Georgia
February 22, 2014 – Gainesville, Georgia
March 8, 2014 – Macon, Georgia
March 29, 2014 – Savannah, Georgia
April 19, 2014 – Augusta, Georgia
May 10, 2014 – Columbus, Georgia
The announcement came a day after Democrat Michelle Nunn, the likely Democratic nominee in the race, announced raising $1.6 million in the last quarter of 2013.
A handful of candidates are competing for the GOP nomination in the Georgia Senate race. So far there has been no clear frontrunner.
