ATLANTA — The scramble for a seat in the U.S. Senate is likely to resemble bumper cars more than the usual cliché of a horse race because of so many candidates.
There are nine candidates so far. It’s still 11 months before the primary, so more could join the fray. Plus, the Libertarian Party has yet to pick its candidate.
At least it has a variety of candidates: three congressmen, three physicians, two immigrants, two former firemen, two wealthy businessmen, two who launched charities, two women, two blacks and one Asian, but no lawyers.
