Another RINO bites the dust!!
This is great for Georgia in the long run, but in the short run he can do a lot of damage now that he doesn’t have to contend with re-election.
I think he’s seen the handwriting on the wall for 2014.
Herman Cain or Allen West ??
He is an Amnesty Liberal who voted for McCain/Kennedy a few years ago....and will probably vote for Rubio/Obama Amnesty if it comes up
Good that GA can now find a Conservative to replace Chambliss...just hope he does not cause much damage before then
“but in the short run he can do a lot of damage now that he doesnt have to contend with re-election.”
RINO’s who screw the people over because they’re free from worrying about re-election just gives conservatives and the Tea Party all the more ammunition to not nominate anybody like them! If Reid and Schumer try to secure his vote because he’s got nothing to lose, they’ll get their comeuppance when they have even more people like Paul and Lee and Cruz and Fischer and Scott and DeMint to deal with.
Are there no conservatives in Georgia who can run?
Demint is retiring.
I hope SC and GA both get some good CONSERVATIVE Senators in 2014! In SC we have both US Senate seats up in 2014. I hope we can get rid of RINO Lindsey Graham.
Not a good senator but good a reader......LOL
Georgia gets lucky!!
He’s already gone, replaced by Scott. My point was that the democrats don’t like having to deal with real conservatives who don’t play ball or the “political game.”
Just sent that whiney POS so long note...lol
Oooohh. Just heard Tom Price’s name. He should run!!
Of course he is. He’s gotten loads of flak here in Georgia and he knows he’s toast. My hope is that Herman Cain will give up that spot on WSB and run. He’s crazy if he don’t since he can do more good in the Senate. It would also be me hope that Isakson sees the handwriting and stands firm.
BUT...my predication is that we’ll see Chambliss vote for Feinstein’s bill....he’s a RINO and can’t help it even if he’s bailing with his country club Senate Pension.
As I understand it, West is a Georgia native and there was talk of him moving back home to run for Congress. This is an interesting opportunity IMO. I’d be tickled with Cain also.
This is great news!!! Thank GOD!
That would be awesome if we could get Cain or West elected.
What would REALLY REALLY be funny is if West could win it, and so the left, for all of their effort to unseat him from a shaky seat in Florida, would then open the door for him to serve like 6 terms in the Senate! Or perhaps HIGHER office....now THAT would be hope and change I could believe in!
True. However, West is orginally from Atlanta.
Cain just said on the radio that he won’t run. I think Tom Price would be a great nominee. Although I’m not from Georgia and don’t know the other candidates.
Heard the same. I hear Paul Broun, and Tom Price are being mentioned. Both are great conservatives.
I wrote him about several issues, taking a stand against his, and told him in two of the emails that I intended to help primary him out in 2014. Maybe he realized that he wasn’t up to the fight, or he got a ton of similar emails!
A while back the GOP moved someone to my safe district in hopes of getting him elected as the token black republican in Congress. Fair or unfair I have the feeling West moving here so he could run for Congress would be viewed as the same thing.
Well you may be right, but your analogy does not hold up.
West would never be viewed as a token.
West is legitmately a Georgia native.
West has a lot more support than whoever your token is.
Why do you hate White people?
