Romney Visits Atlanta to Stump for Chambliss

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney visited Atlanta Friday to support incumbent Republican U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss on Friday. Chambliss is in a tight runoff with Democrat Jim Martin, and the GOP is anxious to keep his seat.

“The reason the whole nation is focused on this is because we have to decide if we want two parties in Washington or only one that gets everything it wants,” Romney said at a rally for Chambliss in Buckhead.

Romney added that Chambliss is vital to the Senate -- to stave off cuts to the military, tax hikes on small businesses, and to keep liberal judges from being appointed the Supreme Court.

Democrats are jockeying for a 60-vote, filibuster-proof “super majority” in the upper chamber -- a prospect that was enhanced when GOP U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens lost his seat in Alaska to a Democrat. The Democrats now have 58 seats - only races in Minnesota and Georgia hanging fire.
