KINGSTON STATEMENT ON SENATOR CHAMBLISS’ ANNOUNCEMENT
SAVANNAH, GA – Congressman Jack Kingston (GA-1) released the following statement upon learning of Senator Chambliss’ decision to retire at the end of his current term:
“Saxby Chambliss has been a great public servant. He is a good and honest man who has always done what he thinks is best for our great state and this country. I have appreciated the opportunity to work with him in Congress. On a personal level, Libby and I cherish our friendship with Saxby and Julianne and know it will continue for years to come.
“Serving the State of Georgia is one of the greatest honors of my life. From the bounties of our fields and the unparalleled might of our soldiers to the top-notch research of our universities and the global commerce churning through our ports, I have worked to strengthen some of our greatest assets. I have also fought to cut the federal budget and reduce the size of government so we may free future generations from a life indebted to China. Over the coming days, I will discuss with my family and meditate through prayer on how best to continue that service.”
