Do Dems have a chance in picking up a senate seat in 2014 as teabaggers pick off another semi-moderate Republican? Maybe.
Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.), one of the Republicans most vulnerable to a conservative primary challenge, will retire in 2014 rather than seek a third term.
Chambliss denied in a statement Friday morning that the potential primary was a factor in his decision, saying he was confident he would have won re-election.
Despite his largely conservative record, Chambliss has attracted conservative ire for his interest in bipartisan compromise. His recent public break with anti-tax advocate Grover Norquist earned him particular scrutiny. He also struggled in the 2008 election, forced into a runoff with Democrat Jim Martin.
As long as the Tea Party has a say in matters, compromise will continue to be a 4-letter word in Republican politics.
The best part of this story is the polling which indicates that Herman Cain, should he decide to run (he says he won’t), would be a serious contender in a Republican primary for Chambliss’ seat. How beautiful would that be! Memories of Sharron Angle come to mind.
If there is a God, there will be a Herman Cain campaign to mock in 2014.
