Georgia senator Saxby Chambliss has also attracted the Tea Party’s attention by disavowing Norquist’s pledge. Chambliss himself acknowledged that voting to raise taxes would almost certainly draw him into a contentious primary, but he doesn’t sound too worried about the challenge.
“I don’t worry about that because I care too much about my country,” Chambliss told Georgia news station WMAZ. “I care a lot more about it than I do Grover Norquist.”
