ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - The four Georgia Republicans running for U.S. Senate say they are united in opposition to a comprehensive immigration reform bill pending in Washington, saying the legislation doesn't do enough for border security. U.S. Reps. Paul Broun of Athens, Phil Gingrey of Marietta and Jack Kingston of Savannah, along with former Secretary of State Karen Handel, voiced their opposition at a news conference Saturday as Republicans gathered for the second day of their state convention. The day began with a breakfast honoring Gov. Nathan Deal and his wife, Sandra. In her speech, Sandra Deal called on the four candidates to "be nice" during what's expected to be a hotly contested race for Georgia's open U.S. Senate seat. Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss is retiring. Later Saturday, Republicans will elect a state chair.
