The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) “will announce this morning that he’s dropping plans to run for a third term in 2014, a decision certain to set off an avalanche of Republican candidates who will seek to replace him,” .

“At least two GOP House members from Georgia, Paul Broun of Athens and Tom Price of Roswell, have been contemplating primary challenges to Chambliss, who has been criticized for participating in a bipartisan effort to broker a deal to address a $16 trillion federal deficit.”
