Cassidy, closely followed by Gardner.

Probably Cotton, Treadwell, or Sullivan.

Stuck with Cassidy as he is pretty generic.

That being said, Kingston puzzles me. He seems like the perfect candidate, yet is still trailing Nunn in the polls. I know Nunn has the name recognition, but both he and Perdue seem like pretty solid candidates.

I think Gardner is the best candidate of this bunch by a good margin. Perdue is pretty good too, in spite of multiple gaffes and every single former GOP candidate endorsing his opponent, he's moved upward in the polls and has forced Kingston to desperately move toward the impeachment position. His upward momentum has me believing that he will win an easier general election than Kingston would.

Keep in mind that while he was never as bombastic as Broun and Gingrey, Kingston has always been pretty far to the right.  He was pulled even further right during the Primaries by having the nutters there.

 This could be a case of the tea partiers not winning the Primary, but the presence may have driven the establishment so far right that it could put them in danger for the General.

Kingston.

Cassidy is close to your "Generic R" but he's a horrible public speaker.

SMC or Rounds. Among purple state candidates - Gardner easily.

Is it excessive to hold a politician's feet to the fire for giving his base the run around at every turn?
