Trump-Clinton race tests Senate race in reliably GOP Georgia

FILE - In an April 24, 2015 file photo, Sen. Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., left, speaks to members of the media following a U.S. Senate delegation tour of the over-budget Veterans Administration hospital complex, which is under construction, in Aurora, Colo. Recent polls show presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton locked in a tight race as the Democrat opens a campaign office in the state and invests in a field organization. Isakson holds a single-digit lead over first-time candidate Jim Barksdale, a wealthy investment manager whose opposition to trade deals and calls for a higher minimum wage has attracted backers of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley, File)ATLANTA (AP) — Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson insists he won’t be a “volunteer apologist” for Donald Trump or anyone else who utters something stupid, but that defiant independence is being sorely tested by the GOP presidential nominee’s sinking support and Democrat Hillary Clinton’s push into surprisingly competitive Georgia.
