Bringing Saxby Back

Saxby Chambliss has been called as the winner of his Senate runoff race in Georgia, ending the possibility of a Democratic super-majority.
On the heels of a concession by Democrat Jim Martin, Republican Saxby Chambliss took the stage to claim his second term in the U.S. Senate. But Republican National Committee Chairman Mike Duncan, who faces a tough slog to re-election in January, grabbed valuable, 10 p.m. television time from the re-elected senator.

Chambliss thanked the RNC head for valuable resources sent to the state. But WAGA (Fox5), the only TV station broadcasting the event live, ended up cutting away from Chambliss in mid-victory statement. In front of a crowd numbering 300, Chambliss thanked supporters and the volunteers from 43 states he said worked on his campaign. “You’re the reason this happened,” the Republican said. “Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”

“You have sent a strong message to the world that conservative Georgia values matter,” Chambliss said.
And we still don't know what's up in Minnesota with Al Franken.
