Poythress to face Chambliss?

Saw this on the political insider:
And there’s speculation that at least two more soldiers may join the election fight. Lt. Gen. David Poythress, Georgia’s state adjunct general who will retire in November, has been mentioned as a possible opponent of Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) Poythress, former secretary of state and labor commission, has experience running statewide.

He’s stepping down from his current post to become CEO of American United Bancorp Inc. in Gwinnett County.

Note the word speculation, but that would be a very interesting race.

Heard the Poythress rumor about a month ago. But since I could never get it on the record, I never reported. Darm those insiders! People actually return their calls!

But anyway, myh sources tell me the Poythress thing ain't gonna happen. He wants to make some real scratch in the private sector.

I would welcome him into the race if he decided to run, but I think it's getting late in the game, even for him.
