(Newser) – John McCain will stump for Saxby Chambliss this week as the Republican Senator drums up support for a Dec. 2 runoff vote against Democrat Jim Martin, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Chambliss has also secured Mike Huckabee to campaign for him in Georgia. Martin, meanwhile, has pleaded with President-elect Barack Obama to stump in the key contest, but no word yet.
