In Georgia, leaked campaign memo ensures attacks

By

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Republicans and Democrats alike agree that U.S. Senate candidate Michelle Nunn hasn't heard the last of Republican attacks using her written campaign plan that mistakenly became public.

The Democratic nominee is one of her party's only shots at picking up a Republican Senate seat this fall. But her effort hit a bump in the road with disclosure of a memo that detailed her consultants' concerns about her potential weaknesses as a candidate.

Republicans say they can use the memo to paint Nunn as a typical, consultant-driven politician who is too liberal for Georgia. Democrats say that's what the GOP would argue anyway.

Nunn faces Republican nominee David Perdue and a Libertarian candidate in the Nov. 4 general election. The winner will replace Sen. Saxby Chambliss, who is retiring.
