Senator Saxby Chambliss is now a hall of famer.  

At the Georgia Peanut Farm Show in Tifton Thursday, The Georgia Peanut Commission inducted him into their peanut hall of fame. They presented Senator Chambliss with a plaque and thanked him for his contributions to the Agriculture industry.

"Well it pretty humbling to be recognized for the work you get paid to do. These people here, these peanut farmers from all over the state have been my friends long before I ever got into politics. And to come back here today and be recognized by them going into their Hall of fame is truly an honor and I'm very humbled today," said Chambliss.

After receiving his award, Chambliss headed back to congress to work on passing the fourth farm bill he's worked on.
