Former state Sen. Perry McGuire pulled out of a crowded GOP race for secretary of state Wednesday — and repackaged himself as a candidate for attorney general.
McGuire, a Douglasville native and corporate attorney, said illegal immigration and public corruption would be among his top issues. McGuire spoke of enlisting local police and local jails in the effort to halt the flow of Mexican workers.
“Georgia will become a very uncomfortable place for illegal aliens,” he said.
McGuire, a legislator from 1993 to 1997 who has an established base among conservative Christian voters, promised that, for criminals, “my office will be the very hand of God.”
