ATLANTA (AP) — Former Georgia Gov. Zell Miller has introduced a new dynamic to his state's U.S. Senate race by endorsing Democrat Michelle Nunn over Republican David Perdue.
The contest will help determine which party controls the Senate for the final two years of President Barack Obama's administration.
Nunn has tried to position herself as a moderate in this Republican-leaning state that Obama lost twice. The 82-year-old Miller is famous for crossing party lines.
In 2004, then a senator himself, he endorsed President George W. Bush for re-election. He also delivered the keynote address at the Republican National Convention.
