Speaking of Sen. Chip Rogers, yesterday I posted Martha Zoller’s claim of a potential primary opponent to Sen. Chambliss. In the comments Icarus speculated Rogers might be a candidate against Saxby. John Konop sent out an email saying:
Rumors are flying that Georgia State Senator Chip Rogers has been approached to challenge US Senator Saxby Chambliss in the Republican primary.
I can’t say for sure Konop first read the Rogers speculation at PP, but we know Konop is a PP reader. Konop’s email attracted the attention of the Political Insider guys who say:
This morning, John Konop — a Republican who challenged U.S. Rep. Tom Price (R-Roswell) in last year’s primary — is fueling talk today that Rogers is being pressured to run against U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss in next year’s GOP primary.
Don’t jump to conclusions. We’ve got calls into Rogers, a Woodstock Republican who was behind the state’s 2006 immigration reform package. We’ll keep you apprised.
