Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) said he was "honored" people were asking him to run against Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) — and sounded open to a bid for the seat, though he said he hadn't made any decisions on the race.

"I don’t know. I'm honored that a lot of people are asking me to run. I've not made that decision," Broun said on a local Georgia radio show. "It's not time to think about it."

The conservative congressman went further when pressed: "When people encourage you to run, how can you not think about it?"

Chambliss has a fairly conservative voting record but has been criticized by conservatives in the state for using bipartisan rhetoric and looking for across-the-aisle solutions. Broun appears to be the most likely to take him on, though Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.) hasn't ruled out a bid.
