The Most Unpredictable Senate Primary of 2014

July 26, 2013

An unknown Baptist, Korean-American businessman from Augusta, Ga., delivered a speech July 19 to a regional conference of the National Federation of Republican Women. Sources say he shelled out $5,000 to serve as a “presenting sponsor” of the Atlanta event for 300 top Republicans, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal.

So who was he?

Eugene Yu had just joined the most intriguing primary in the country: the GOP race for Georgia’s open Senate seat. He and at least six other Republicans are vying for the nomination in one of the Senate’s top contests of 2014.

As Democratic recruit Michelle Nunn entered a nearly empty primary field this week, Yu’s candidacy — even as an underdog — is emblematic of the free-for-all that has ensued on the Republican side since Sen. Saxby Chambliss announced his retirement in January.
