The 2014 United States Senate election in Georgia will be held on November 4, 2014, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the State of Georgia, concurrently with the election of the Governor of Georgia, as well as other elections to the United States Senate in other states and elections to the United States House of Representatives and various state and local elections.

Incumbent Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss announced on January 25, 2013 that he would not run for re-election, making this an open-seat race.[1] After a close and contentious primary campaign, businessman David Perdue and U.S. Representative Jack Kingston advanced to a runoff for the Republican nomination, which was narrowly won by Perdue. The Democratic primary was decisively won by Points of Light CEO Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn. Also running is Libertarian nominee Amanda Swafford, a former Flowery Branch City Councilwoman.

If no candidate receives at least 50 percent plus one vote, a runoff will be held on January 6, 2015, after the 114th Congress has been sworn-in.[2]

Republican primary[edit]

The primary was held on May 20, 2014. No candidate won more than 50% of the vote, so a runoff was held between the top two candidates, David Perdue and Jack Kingston. The 30.6 percent won by Perdue is the lowest ever for a first-place finisher in a Georgia U.S. Senate primary by either party in state history.[3]

This Senate race, as many others across the United States, will be heavily influenced by outside PACs and organizations who support various candidates.[119] The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is expected to spend almost $50 million on elections this year[119] and has endorsed Republican Jack Kingston. More than $4.6 million has been spent on advertising in the Georgia race by outside groups so far.[120] In 2008, outside groups spent more than $20 million in the Georgia Senate race.[121]
