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.
