Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) filed paperwork Wednesday to run for the seat of retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), the first to jump into the race, National Journal reports

Broun, who made headlines last year when he called evolution and the big bang theory “lies straight from the pit of Hell,” could be a headache to establishment Republicans who want to make sure the nomination goes to a candidate likely to appeal in a general election, a risk even in a red state like Georgia.
