Mike: “Saxby Chambliss Wins!”

The following are the comments written by Governor Mike Huckabee on Saxby Chambliss’ big win in the Georgia US Senate runoff.  In fact the margin ended up being over 315,000 votes when all was said and done.  It is a stunning landslide considering how much money the Democrats poured into the state and that the last polls showed Saxby only ahead by 4% (the margin ended up being 14%):

The people of Georgia have spoken. They have recognized the tremendous job that Senator Saxby Chambliss has done in the United States Senate, and have voted to return him to the Senate. As you know, Saxby Chambliss is a strong supporter of the FairTax, and his victory tonight is a clear indication that Georgia voters support the FairTax also.

The Democrats threw every weapon at Senator Chambliss that they had, including former President Bill Clinton, and a radio ad by President elect Barack Obama. But the voters of Georgia recognized the job that Saxby has done for them in the last six years and voted this evening to keep him working on their behalf.

Saxby Chambliss’ victory means that the Democrats will not have their veto proof majority. But more important than that, Saxby’s victory means that a solid conservative returns to the Senate to fight for the conservative Republican values that are so important to all of us.

Saxby Chambliss has been a strong conservative voice since his election in 2002. He is known as a champion of our military and serves on the Senate Armed Services Committee, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Rules Committee and is the ranking Republican member of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry.

Congratulations Senator Chambliss on your victory. Thank you to the voters of Georgia. A special thank you to all the Huck PAC supporters who helped by making phone calls.

God Bless,

Mike Huckabee

    Another BIG victory for the FairTax. We’re up against those who like the present income tax system, who believe in gov’t controlling the economy (complete with income tax code, and tax-favor bartering for special interests at taxpayer expense). However, we’ve seen how that has worked – the Congress has spent us into effective bankruptcy.

    Why, we even have the gov’t sending money back out to the taxpayers from whom they confiscated it through income tax withholding!

    Under FairTax, the gov’t only receives money AS THE ECONOMY IS STIMULATED! (novel idea, huh?) Thus, when YOU benefit (by purchased goods and services for personal and family needs), the GOV’T BENEFITS (in a healthy way).

    Pretty simple, yeah? Now, how does all of this wash out? Researched FairTax benefits are well-documented at http://snipr.com/fairtaxslate . And the URGENT NECESSITY for joining FairTax.org – and getting the FairTax Act enacted – is reasoned at http://snipr.com/meltdowninprogress .
