It’s official: Kingston’s running |

Insisting on Thursday morning that the next battleground for America’s future will shift to the U.S. Senate, Savannah Congressman Jack Kingston formally entered the race that next year will decide the successor to retiring U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

“The United States Senate has not passed a credible budget in four years,” Kingston said while standing near the Waving Girl statue in Savannah’s Morrell Park on the banks of the Savannah River. “In the past four years, it has only passed nine out of 48 appropriation bills.

“It has killed any attempts to rein in entitlements, reform out-of-control spending or reduce government interference in our lives. If we are going to turn America around, we have to start with the United States Senate.”

Kingston, widely presumed during the past two months to be a candidate-in-waiting, made his candidacy official in front of about 150 people, including family members, supporters and local politicians, under increasingly gray skies and the threat of rain.
