Its a real shame to see people like Jeanne Seaver involved with Purdue's campaign. As a resident of Chatham county, I have watched her field two very unsuccessful campaigns for both Congress and County Commission seats (respectively). While she means well, she is both naive and inexperienced and seems to be using any forum available to try and strengthen her beleaguered reputation. 

Republican candidates (now more than ever) need to be extremely careful with regards to whom they select to represent them. Perdue is the ideal candidate for a Senate seat, but he will be fully tested in his fight against another indecisive yet established Democrat and selecting Tea Party halfwits like Seaver is not, in my opinion, they way to market ones self effectively.

Janet Byington of Floyd County worked for Gingrey. Guess she's aiming to get a new job.

Looking at the 'Dekalb co-chairs' it's easy to see why 'Earmark Jack' lost.....

Aside from being a terrible Congressman.

 So all David Pedue had to do to bring Jack Kingston backers (tea party) into the fold is to include several Jack Kingston backers to his list of chairman.  What happened to HARP, HARP, HARP and the tea party's refusal to back any candidate who supports it? Hold up, is not the tea party suppose to be free of partisan politics?  At least that's the story they were telling when they went after President Obama for Wall Street bailouts.  When they were marching around DC with their witch doctor, Hitler and HARP, HARP, HARP signs.  Am I missing something? Hell if president Obama had known they were that cheap he would have been added some of the tea party folk to a list.  To think we went through such an ugly chapter in American politics and all it took was adding them to a list to win their votes.  Priceless....

@MHSmith You call it unity I call it hoarding, holding on to something worthless.David Perdue is picking up scraps from two losers Cantor and Kingston.
