Former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel has been the clear leader of the Republicans looking to replace HHS Secretary Tom Price in Congress in recent polling. The race for the Georgia 6th features a crowded field and a run off seems to be in the offing. With former Democratic Congressional staffer seeming assured of one of those run off spots fellow Republicans are turning their aim to Handel to keep her from securing the second. Handel does have favorable name ID in the district, but her record on winning elections has shown diminishing returns for her since she left the Secretary of State position to run for Governor in 2010.
