Tom Price Not Running for Senate in Georgia

Tom Price, a Republican congressman from Georgia, will not run for the U.S. Senate next year. Price told the Marietta Daily Journal that his "assessment at this point is the House is the battleground for politics in this country right now" and he will seek sixth term for his metro Atlanta House seat.
At the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jim Galloway passes along a note from Karen Handel, a Republican close to Price who has been thought of as a possible Senate candidate if Price decided not to run:
Among the Republicans already seeking the nomination to replace retiring GOP senator Saxby Chambliss are House members Paul Broun, Phil Gingrey, and Jack Kingston. Potential Democratic candidates John Barrow, a House member, and Kasim Reed, the mayor of Atlanta, said publicly this week they would not seek the seat.
