But there's a new energy among Democrats in the state, where candidate Michelle Nunn represents the party's best chance of winning a Senate seat in years.<p>This is Nunn's first run for public office, but she's far from an unknown in a state where her father, Sam Nunn, is a Democratic icon who represented Georgia in the Senate for more than two decades.<p>Like her father, Nunn positions herself as a moderate Democrat, willing to reach across the aisle to work with Republicans.
