Romney campaigns for Chambliss!
ATLANTA (MyFOX Atlanta) -- Former Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is in Georgia Friday to help rally support for Saxby Chambliss.
Chambliss is the incumbent United States senator from Georgia who is in a run-off election against Jim Martin.
Saxby Chambliss and Jim Martin are in a high-stakes race for the U.S. Senate and have called several high profile names to encourage voters to return to the polls, including John McCain, Bill Clinton, Mike Huckabee, and Al Gore.
“Now, it’s time to make sure that we send this man back to the Senate. That we get him working on the challenges we face. That he keeps America strong. That he keeps America free. That he keeps America’s economy growing and striving to make sure we have a bright future. It’s time to reelect once and for all Saxby Chambliss," said Romney.
A win for Chambliss or Martin is crucial for the balance of power in the U.S. Senate.
If Martin and democrat Al Franken from Minnesota win, then the democrats would have 60 seats in the Senate, which would ultimately eliminate the republican filibuster.
