Rep. Steve King isn’t the only serious House wingnut attempting to move up to the Senate. Rep. Paul Broun of Georgia, a charter member of the House Crackpot Caucus, is going to run for the Republican nomination to replace Sen. Saxby Chambliss in 2014:
Georgia GOP Rep. Paul Broun is expected to announce his candidacy for Senate Wednesday in the race to replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
Broun, who represents Georgia’s 10th district, will hold a press conference Wednesday afternoon in Atlanta to announce his decision. Though he hasn’t officially said yet that he will enter the race, Broun is widely expected to do so. His wife, Niki, also said last week that her husband is planning to run.
