Chambliss, who faces the threat of a primary challenge in 2014, said the fiscal cliff “weighs on him” for reasons other than his own re-election.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., who faces the serious threat of a primary challenge and has suggested flexibility on taxes, said the fiscal cliff “weighs” on him because it’s a critical issue for the country, not because of his 2014 re-election. “We’ve got to do what’s right for the country,” he said. “The politics will take care of itself.”
