Here we go.
Saxby Chambliss will not be running for reelection in 2014:
Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss said Friday he will not seek a third term next year, expressing deep frustration with Washington gridlock that he doesn’t see changing in a divided government.
Chambliss, 69, rejected suggestions he couldn’t have survived a likely GOP primary fight with the tea party, insisting he has a proud conservative record and noting he received more votes than any other statewide official in Georgia history in 2008.
Instead, he cited his frustration with both Democratic President Barack Obama and the lack of meaningful legislation in Congress.
This seems like a really good chance to move the seat to the right in a safe (right? right?) state.
But I know nothing about the likely contenders in the Republican primary, and the likely Democratic opponent.
So inform me, oh knowledgeable ones.
And yes, we do have an Operation Counterweight 2014 tag already.DONATE
