Karen Handel, Susan G. Komen/ Planned Parenthood debacle, considers a run for US Senate

Karen Handel sent a lovely email to her supporters announcing that she is considering a run for the US Senate seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss. Karen Handel’s last attempt at statewide Georgia politics was a run for Governor against Nathan Deal. Notably, Karen Handel was endorsed by Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin came to Georgia in support of Handel’s candidacy.

Here’s the email:

As you know, U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss announced earlier this year that he has decided to retire at the end of his term. So many of you have reached out and encouraged me to run for the U.S. Senate. I am truly uplifted by this outpouring of support, and your input and counsel are important as Steve and I consider this decision and what is best for Georgia and our country.

Washington has failed us, and the problems facing our country are immense. However, with a fresh vision and true conservative leadership, the return to a prosperous and growing America can be within our reach. What we need is clear: a proven reformer that brings new perspective, someone who isn’t afraid to “shake things up,” and a fighter that stays true to conservative values no matter the political cost.

I wanted to share with you an article about the race for U.S. Senate written by a national conservative magazine. The article summarizes the race well and recognizes one of my greatest strengths: supporters like you.

Steve and I are continuing to think through this important decision and hope you will give us the benefit of your input. Meanwhile, we thank you for your continued support, friendship and prayers.

Regards,
Karen
