RNC Chair Mike Duncan's Statement On Chambliss' Re-election

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Mike Duncan released the following statement on Saxby Chambliss' successful re-election bid Tuesday night.

"When voters in Georgia reelected Saxby Chambliss to the United States Senate today, they selected a strong, conservative leader who shares their values and could be trusted to uphold the Republican principles of lower taxes and a strong defense. His reelection sends a clear message that the Republican Party and our core conservative principles are alive and well.

"Tonight's victory was a team effort between the Chambliss Campaign, the Georgia Republican Party, the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the RNC. We combined a strong, conservative candidate in Senator Chambliss with a grassroots effort that leveraged technology to reach millions of Georgians via mail, phone, Internet, and in person. We shared our message of conservative principles and Georgians agreed.

"As we head into the 2010 cycle, tonight's result sends a strong and confident message to those committed to electing candidates who stand by the core principles upon which our Party was founded."
