He told The Marietta Daily Journal Friday he will be seeking re-election instead to his 6th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Citing the lack of bipartisanship that he covered during a Sandy Springs/Perimeter Chamber of Commerce meeting last year, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss announced on Friday that he is not seeking re-election in 2014. “This is about frustration, both at a lack of leadership from the White House and at the dearth of meaningful action from Congress, especially on issues that are the foundation of our nation’s economic health," Chambliss said in a statement.

"For our nation to be strong, for our country to prosper, we cannot continue to play politics with the …
