    Representative Jack Kingston was defeated in the Georgia Senate runoff election this evening, ending the Congressman's twenty plus year career in the House. David Perdue was leading Mr. Kingston by 8,000 votes with 99 percent of precincts reporting.

    Perdue is a businessman who was formerly CEO of both Reebok and Dollar General. This is his first run for office.

    The general election will pit Perdue against Democrat Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Senator Sam Nunn and first time candidate herself. While the Democrats are trying to bring Georgia into play, it is still a deeply conservative state and it will be quite difficult for Ms. Nunn to overcome that.

    Do we have any Georgia residents on the site? What are your thoughts about Mr. Kingston's defeat?
