Georgia Senator says President's re-election not sure thing

Senator Saxby Chambliss says he thinks Republicans could defeat President Obama next year.

Chambliss told us today that skyrocketing gas prices, high unemployment, and military actions in three nations in the Middle East will be key campaign issues.

The Senator from Moultrie says the President has shown weak leadership on national security, the debt and the deficit , and that could make him a one term President.

"I think he is very vulnerable. I do. I have no idea who the Republican nominee will be obviously. But I think the right candidate will be able to run a very strong race against the current incumbent," said Chambliss.

Senator Chambliss expects several major Republican contenders to establish their campaigns for President this summer.

President Obama has already started raising money for his re-election campaign.
