So, I managed to catch the first hour of Erick Erickson’s show tonight. He led off the show by stating that he has been approached by serious people asking him to consider a primary challenge to Senator Saxby Chambliss. He says he hadn’t really been considering it, but will get with his wife and give it “prayerful consideration.”
I’ve traded a couple of texts with him and would say this isn’t a publicity stunt. Nor has he decided he’s running and is being coy about it. It’s something he needs to think about. So he will.
And given that RedState has been behind some successful (and unsuccessful) Republican primary challenges, it would appear that there is a network that could be quickly tapped for the marathon that will be this apparent campaign.
To put that into perspective, I’m about to make the annual trek to Callaway Gardens to look at Christmas lights. We’ll not only have Christmas of 2013, but Easter of 2014 before anyone officially qualifies for this race. It’s going to be a long one. Pace yourselves accordingly.
