The Republican senior senator from Georgia is expected to announce that he will not seek a third term. Politico reports:
Chambliss has informed colleagues and staff that he will retire at the end of his term, a surprise move given that he had insisted for months that he planned to run again in 2014. But Chambliss has grown increasingly frustrated with the pervasive gridlock in the Senate — particularly its inability to reach a grand bargain to slash deficits.
As important as this development is, the 2014 midterms are over a year away. In the meantime, expect many more wrinkles in the forehead of Uncle Sam.
