Democratic Rep. Barrow passes on Ga. Senate race

Democratic Rep. John Barrow said Tuesday he will not run for an open Senate seat in Georgia, leaving his party to scramble for a top-tier candidate in 2014.

Barrow's decision was reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The five-term lawmaker, a member of the conservative Blue Dog Coalition, had been considering running next year for the seat of retiring GOP Sen. Saxby Chambliss.
