"I'm grateful for the encouragement I've received from folks all across the State of Georgia, but I've decided that I will not be a candidate for the Senate in 2014. I enjoy my work on behalf of the folks in the 12th District, and I look forward to continuing to serve them in the House of Representatives."

- U.S. Rep. John Barrow, D-Augusta, announces that he will not enter 2014 U.S. Senate race to replace Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Georgia. Many political observers thought that the fifth-term congressman would be one of the Democrat's best challengers against a crowded Republican field. (via the AJC)

Democrats will have to look elsewhere for a candidate now that the Blue Dog has bowed out. Michelle Nunn and state Rep. Scott Holcomb, D-Atlanta, are among the rumored possibilities. But it is anybody's guess at this point.
