In Georgia, Michelle Nunn is running for her father Sam's old U.S. Senate seat while state Senator Jason Carter, Jimmy's grandson, is running for governor. Neither centrist Democrat is likely to become a symbol of the state's or the South's political future but instead will be seen as a bridge to that future.
