Senator Saxby Chambliss, born November 10, 1943 (age 71), is the senior senator from the state of Georgia. A Republican, he has been in the Senate since 2002, when he defeated Democrat Max Cleland to gain the seat in a controversial race, after which Chambliss was accused of painting his veteran opponent as unpatriotic. His colleague is Johnny Isakson, a fellow Republican, and a former colleague when both were in the House of Representatives, as well.

Chambliss was successful in holding off his liberal and democratic Jim Martin, keeping the filibuster in the balance. Saxby Chambliss says that he is pro-life and does not support gay marriage, but supports tax increases, even though earlier in his career he received a reward from Grover Norquist for taking the opposite position.
