ATLANTA (AP) - Republican and Democratic primary voters will soon decide among several candidates vying for Georgia's open U.S. Senate seat.

The Associated Press requested access to the tax returns of the top candidates who are leading in fundraising and polls ahead of the May 20 primary, seeking insights into their personal finances.

Republicans Karen Handel, Phil Gingrey and David Perdue released them. Two others - Republican Jack Kingston and Democrat Michelle Nunn - have said they plan to but haven't yet. Republican Paul Broun declined and pointed to personal financial disclosures filed annually with Congress.

Those disclosures show Gingrey, Kingston, Nunn and Perdue all reported assets north of $1 million. Perdue and his wife led the field, with assets valued at between $11.9 million and $48 million.
