ATLANTA — After months of hearing about Republican candidates in an upcoming U.S. Senate race, the first high-profile Democrat has entered the fray.

Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn, announced her campaign in the 2014 race on Facebook Tuesday.

“I’m running for Senate because I’ve seen firsthand the power of citizens to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of those around them,” Nunn posted.

Nunn is the CEO and founder of Points of Light, a nonprofit dedicated to volunteerism. Her father served in the Senate from 1972 to 1996, including as chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Nunn joins Atlanta doctor Branko Radulovacki as the only announced Democrats in the race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss in 2014. Republican candidates include U.S. Reps. Paul Broun, Jack Kingston and Phil Gingrey and former Secretary of State Karen Handel.

Just another big, intrusive, corrupt government [D] candidate in the Schumer, Pelosi, Reid, Obama mold. I guess $300K a year from the 'non-profit' [ elite moocher scheme ] isn't cutting it any more.

She cant be any worse than the so-called conservatives we have now that have made Georgia a laughing stock.

A laughing stock by whom? The liberal Northeast? Detroit? Criminals from Chicago?

I don't believe anything Why_not has to say because of stereotypical comments such as the one he has posted here. But just what do you know about Michelle Nunn notblind? I've met her father, and I know her father served honorably for this country. So on what basis to you judge Michelle Nunn? I will wait til I see what she has to offer before judging her ability to serve.

She's just another community organizer.

Stereotypical comments abound from most of the posters here.

Don't like who's in office or who's running? You are free to join the race at any time.

Cue: A myriad of excuses explaining why it's impossible for "the average person" to run.

Dang, give the woman a chance. It's much easier to sit back and complain anonymously on the boards rather than get involved...also keeps others from finding any skeletons in your closet.

Anybody that thinks their first political campaign should be for a United States Senator's seat is not anyone I or anybody else should vote for. Even the great divider worked his way up step by step.

You are free to run but will never win. Democrats will say anything to get elected but do something all together different once in that office.The last thing we need is a Democratic controlled Senate. The donkeys had their chance and blew it from lack of experience and greed and power. We are way past time for a change and the sooner the Hispanics wake up to reality, the better. Apparently they aren't educated enough to see what's going on.
