No challenge

A Miami Herald article explored the lack of a Democratic challenger to contest the seat held by Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson.

In the story, M.V. Hood, a political science professor in UGA’s School of Public and International Affairs, explained the Democrats’ conundrum.

“To even have a chance to unseat (Isakson), they would need to run someone that’s a quality challenger,” Hood told the Herald. “Someone that’s got political experience, elected office-holding experience­-and it doesn’t look like they have anyone who wants to jump into the fray.”
