Broun has been considered a likely contender for the seat for some time. Recently, Broun said he was "honored" people were asking him to run, 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."

A Broun spokesman did not refute O'Shea's report, and said in an email to The Hill that "we expect Dr. Broun to make a formal announcement within the next week" concerning his future plans.
