Inside Politics Speed Read: Good Congress, bad Congress

Good Congress, Bad Congress – You could get intellectual whiplash watching some of the campaign commercials starting to emerge from Democrats in 2014.

Take Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn wants her dad’s old job. She’s running as a Democrat to fill the Georgia Senate seat he held as a Democrat for 25 years, from 1972 until 1997.

But Georgia politics and the Democratic Party have changed a lot in the meantime. Nunn is running as a political outsider and her first TV ad makes clear she wants voters to think she’ll have her sights set on Washington and members of Congress if they send her to Capitol Hill.

(CNN) – Sarah Palin strikes again - this time lending her conservative star power to candidate Karen Handel in the jam-packed battle for the GOP Senate nomination in Georgia.

The stakes in the race are high for both parties as Democrats eye the seat in the red state as one of their few potential pick-ups in 2014 – a prospect Palin underscored Thursday in her endorsement.

Will Nunn's entrance into Senate race put Georgia in play?

(CNN) – Take a famous name, a state with changing demographics and a GOP-controlled seat that Republicans can't lose next year if they want to reclaim control of the U.S. Senate.

Those ingredients add up to the likelihood of a high-stakes, fiercely contested and expensive race for an open seat in Georgia.
