Statement On Retirement Of Senator Saxby Chambliss
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) made the following statement on news that Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss will not seek reelection in 2014.
“I was informed by Senator Chambliss earlier today that he would not seek reelection. I received this news with great sadness and disappointment because Saxby is one of my best friends in or out of politics. I know this was a difficult decision for Saxby and Julianne, but I understand their desire to spend time with their wonderful family and enter into a new phase of their lives.
“Saxby Chambliss is one of the Senate’s strongest voices on national security, and is incredibly respected both for his intellect and gentlemanly nature. His decision not to seek reelection is a great loss for the United States Senate. I am confident that Saxby will continue to aggressively represent the people of Georgia and our nation as a whole until his last day in office. The Chambliss family are my dearest friends and have served the people of Georgia well.”
