ATLANTA — David Perdue and Nathan Deal continue to lead in their GOP primaries in a voter survey released Thursday, and it shows that Karen Handel is gaining ground.
Handel, Georgia’s former secretary of state, is now in third place in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate behind Perdue, a former CEO of Reebok and Dollar General, and Jack Kingston, a congressman from Savannah. Recent polls had placed Handel at 5 percent or so and back in fifth place.
Her prospects are being buoyed by recent endorsements from Sarah Palin and Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer as well as news about a slight from Perdue who had dismissed her candidacy at a forum because she never finished college.
