Following last week’s informal announcement, Georgia Congressman Paul Broun (R-Athens) will make his formal declaration to seek outgoing Senator Saxby Chambliss’ seat at 4 PM EST at Hilton Atlanta. Last Tuesday, ViralRead.com exclusively reported that the wife of Georgia Rep. Paul Broun, Niki, had given her blessing to her husband to seek the seat of retiring Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss in 2014. The announcement puts one of the nation’s most controversial Republican congressmen back in the spotlight.

Tonight was a night of surprises for anyone who attended the Georgia C.H.A.R.G.E (Citizens Helping America Restore Government Ethics) meeting in Gwinnett county. Luckily, ViralRead was on the scene with a front row seat to all the fireworks. The surprise, however, didn’t come from the keynote speaker, former Secretary of State and 2010 gubernatorial candidate Karen Handel. Moments before the meeting was underway Congressman Paul Broun (R-Athens) shocked the crowd as he walked into the room with his wife, Niki Broun, and a top-level staffer.
