Following Hartwell Debate, GOP Chair Endorses Whitehead
(Hartwell, GA) – State Senator Jim Whitehead (R-Evans), a candidate to fill Georgia’s 10th Congressional seat vacated by the late Congressman Charlie Norwood, received the endorsement today of Hart County GOP Chairman Bill Myers following his performance at the Hart County GOP debate.
“After listening to all the republican candidates at today’s debate, it is clear Jim Whitehead is the best man for the job,” said Myers. “Jim made it clear that he has the experience and the ability to best carry on the Norwood legacy. There is no doubt in my mind that he would be the best representative for Hart County.”
“I am pleased to accept the endorsement of the GOP Hart Chairman, Bill Myers” said Whitehead. “The folks of Hart County need a strong advocate in Washington regarding Corps of Engineers issues, border security and taxes— I am pleased Senator Nancy Schaefer and local officials like Mayor Matt Beasley, and Hart County Board of Education member Ronny Weaver believe I am the best man for the job.”
The Hart County Republican Party hosted five of the Republican candidates, and a representative from the Bill Greene campaign to debate the issues at Fletchers Restaurant in downtown Hartwell.
