After battling for more than two months, Georgia voters today will decide whether Savannah Congressman Jack Kingston or veteran businessman David Perdue will advance to face Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn, a longtime nonprofit exec, in the battle for retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss' seat.

Both candidates have piled up endorsements in recent weeks. Kingston has touted former Georgia Secretary of State Karen Handel, U.S. Rep. Phil Gingrey of Marietta, and Erick Erickson among his key backers. And Perdue has garnered support from former Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue (who also happens to be his cousin) and former presidential candidate and radio host Herman Cain.

Earlier this morning, Perdue received a highly coveted endorsement from Waka Flocka Flame. But the Atlanta rapper deleted his tweet about two hours later. Here's a screenshot of the endorsement:
