To gain a majority in the U.S. Senate this fall, Republicans will need to defeat a handful of Democratic candidates in several close races. One such race is in the U.S. state of Georgia, where Michelle Nunn, the daughter of former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn, and David Purdue, the son of former Governor Sonny Purdue, are battling for each vote. As VOA’s Kane Farabaugh reports, Georgia’s growing minority voters could play a key role in the election, or a subsequent run-off.
