Democrat Michelle Nunn says she is running for the U.S. Senate from Georgia in 2014.

Nunn, the daughter of former U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn of Georgia, said Monday evening that she is seeking the seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

Nunn said she plans to draw on her experiences working as CEO of one of the nation's largest volunteer organizations, Points of Light, to run a campaign focused on critical issues such as the federal deficit.

She says she believes in the power of the individual to foster change, work with others and solve problems.

Nunn becomes the first major Democrat to enter the race. On the Republican side, U.S. Reps. Paul Broun of Athens, Phil Gingrey of Marietta and Jack Kingston of Savannah — along with former Secretary of State Karen Handel — have entered the race.
