    Price has spent the last couple of years positioning himself as an outsider in Washington, and to some extent here in Georgia as well. He was the only Georgia congressman who backed Karen Handel over Nathan Deal in the 2010 primary. He more recently hired Herman Cain's presidential press spokesperson Ellen Carmichael, who works the tea party crowd through social media quite handily. He rejected an offer from Boehner to take a ceremonial leadership position if he would end his challenge for the House Conference Chair, demonstrating he will stand up to authority. All boosting his credibility with those who would consider supporting a primary challenge.

    So its entirely possible that if Handel declines to run, it's because Price will have convinced her and her core support group that he has a better chance displacing "the betrayer to the cause that is Chambliss" in the Primary.
