In 2013, I campaigned for State Chairman because I wanted to see the GOP once again have the backs of the grassroots activists and ensure we had the financial and technological infrastructure to do so. While other candidates in this State Chairman's race may share this vision, I know of only one capable of enacting these ideals and accomplishing this mission. Because of my faith in his abilities and his faithfulness to this Party, I proudly endorse John Watson for Chairman.
At this time, Georgia is witnessing an emboldened Democratic Party seeking to flip a congressional district that’s been solidly Republican for decades. While this battle ends June 20th, John recognizes this is only the first test of many to come. Unfortunately, our state party is not currently equipped with the financial resources or leadership necessary to meet the challenges of 2018 and beyond. John has proven his ability to fundraise, and equally as important, his ability to support statewide grassroots organizations. I look forward to seeing him fulfill our shared vision for the Georgia GOP.
It is for these reasons I am endorsing John Watson to be the next Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party. John has worked behind the scenes for over 25 years to help those men and women who champion Republicanism at the State Capitol, and it is time for him to now carry the flag of grassroots Republicans like you and me. He will do this with humility, respect, and professionalism, because that’s just the kind of guy John is.
As we all know, politics is a team sport. Therefore, we must all unite to ensure John achieves victory. Please join me on June 3rd in Augusta and Vote for John Watson for Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party.
