Erick Erickson, the conservative activist and CNN contributor, says he is giving serious thought to challenging Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., in the 2014 primary.
“I had been rather dismissive of it, but in the past two days have been approached by several organizations and individuals I greatly respect who have asked me to really consider it,” Erickson said, according to CNN. “I owe them that and will consider it, but am not prepared to commit to it. I have plenty of time to think about it.”
Chambliss has become a recent target of conservatives for backing away from Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge.
“Whether it is me or someone else, conservatives should make beating Saxby Chambliss their chief cause in primary season 2014,” Erickson said.
