GOP voters in Ga. to decide Senate nominee

ATLANTA (AP) - Republican voters in Georgia will finally select their Senate nominee Tuesday after a bruising nine-week runoff.

Voters will be heading to the polls to decide between U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston and businessman David Perdue. The winner will compete against Democrat Michelle Nunn for a seat Republicans can ill afford to lose as they look to take control of the Senate.

The closely watched campaign has been shaped largely by each candidate's personal history rather than the issues. The two are both conservatives in a state that has been dominated in recent years by Republicans who hold every statewide office.

The race has focused on whether Kingston's 11 terms in Congress are an asset or a liability, a sign he's a proven conservative or part of the gridlock in Washington.
