The chairman of the House Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations Subcommittee, Jack Kingston, R-Ga., was defeated in a bid to seek a Senate seat. Roll Call’s Kyle Trygstad has much more  on the results of Georgia primary runoff election, which has jolted the future plans of the House appropriations “cardinal.”

The victory by businessman David Perdue has potential implications for the Senate, too, of course.

“The race for the seat of retiring Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss marks one of Democrats’ only pickup opportunities — and a race Republicans can’t afford to lose if they hope to win the Senate majority. The GOP needs to net six seats to gain control of the chamber,” Trygstad writes.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quotes Kingston as saying his long tenure in Congress could’ve been a problem for voters. “You know, people are very frustrated with Washington, D.C. and I think that was a big hurdle,” Kingston said. “And my opponent capitalized on that — as he should.”
