Wow……

I just did a post on the political maneuvering with this guy and he ups and retires!

Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) will retire at the end of his Senate term, according to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The two-term senator told his staff Friday morning that he would not seek a third term, according to the report. The move comes as other Republicans had appeared increasingly likely to challenge him in the GOP primary, and will likely trigger a flood of Republican interest in running for the seat.

    A part of the Saxby story will be whether he decided to retire due to worries about losing a primary challenge from his right.

  2. James B, maybe it’s health problems for all we know.

    But you can get lots of down-ballot statewide officeholders will run for this Senate seat now that they’ve gotten word of Chambliss’ plans to retire.

    Now we can await the next political retirements to come in the next several months.

  3. on Chambliss is was fighting the right in the primary….
