From the Stephens campaign:
Building on the positive momentum that has defined his campaign for Secretary of State since he announced his candidacy in March, Senator Bill Stephens announced today that former Senator and new Sandy Springs City Councilman Rusty Paul will join his campaign team as a senior advisor and co-chair of Stephens’ statewide committee.
“No one knows Georgia and Georgia voters better than Rusty Paul. We served together in the first Republican Majority transition team in 134 years,” Stephens said Friday. “Rusty’s historic election as councilman for the new city of Sandy Springs with 82 percent of the vote is indicative of his unprecedented skill as a public servant and political strategist. There is no tougher fighter or better friend to have in Fulton County or in a Georgia statewide campaign.”
Paul will be involved in multiple aspects of the campaign, particularly Fulton and metro area grassroots and strategy, fundraising, and overall campaign strategy.
“Bill Stephens is one of the most consistent, steadfast defenders of our conservative principles in Georgia politics today,” Paul commented Friday. “I am honored to be an integral part of his campaign for Secretary of State and will do everything in my power to make sure Bill is elected next November. Bill Stephens is the kind of leader this state needs.”
