Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue has pushed back the date of a special election that will fill Georgia's vacant 9th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives and two other vacancies under the Gold Dome.
President Barack Obama on Wednesday called for federal lawmakers to vote "up or down" on bitterly contested health care legislation in the next few weeks without allowing Republicans to kill the bill with mere talk.
Most of the candidates who already had hopes to be elected as Georgia's 9th District congressman in November now say they have their sights set on finishing out the last few months of U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal's current term.
Republican gubernatorial candidate Ray McBerry came to what he called "the heart of Nathan Deal territory" Monday calling for a rejection of mainstream conservatism and seeking support from Gainesville's constitutional conservatives.
