Today, Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (D-GA) issued the following statement on Senator Saxby Chambliss' (R-GA) announcement regarding his decision not to run for re-election to the Senate in 2014.

"The announcement caught me by surprise. I will certainly miss working with him on a bipartisan basis on issues affecting Georgia and our nation such as agriculture, national defense, fiscal responsibility, and our economic recovery," said Congressman Bishop. "Senator Chambliss is a thoughtful and courageous public servant who puts the good of the country before party politics. Having served with him as a colleague in the U.S. House of Representatives, having served as his Congressman, and having shared a warm personal relationship with Saxby and Julianne, Vivian and I respect his decision, extend our best wishes and look forward to working together for Georgians and the country during the remainder of his service."
