Eric Johnson Opens Savannah Office

from his press release:

SAVANNAH — Senator Eric Johnson, Republican candidate for Governor, today opened his Savannah campaign office at 329 Commercial Drive in Savannah. The office will initially be open from 10 AM – 3 PM Monday through Saturday and serve as the hub for political efforts in Southeast Georgia.

“For 17 years you allowed me to represent you and for that I am incredibly grateful. Together, we fought for strong families, smaller government and free enterprise,” Johnson told local supporters that joined him in his hometown for the opening. “But there is more work to be done. That’s why I’m running to be Georgia’s 82nd Governor.”

Johnson also spoke about his commitment to putting Georgia back to work and his plan to spur private sector job creation.

“Don’t let anybody tell us that our best days are behind us. With the right leadership, Georgia can emerge out of this recession faster than the rest of the nation and be stronger than ever before,” continued Johnson. “And folks, I’m just the guy to do it.”

An architect and a respected conservative leader, Eric Johnson served as President Pro Tempore of the Georgia State Senate. In that role, he passed legislation that cut taxes and spending, empowered small businesses, and protected doctors and businesses from frivolous lawsuits. He and his wife Kathryn have two grown children and live in Savannah. For more information please visit www.JohnsonForGeorgians.com.

    Sounds like he has a long term campaign plan. Should be interesting in the next couple of months.

    Eric will do very well in Chatham County and surrounding area. Elsewhere I don’t have a feel for. The GOP does badly need a credible alternative to the OX. Next reporting of financials will be very telling. Hopefully the candidates with little hope won’t actually qualify to run and drop out of the race, giving a better chance in a run-off for the most viable vs. the OX.

    Doug Deal takes out Ray McBerry in one afternoon. Surely the wrath of the entire league of Peach Pundits can move Ox out of the way before the primary?!!?

    Congrats to the Senator from Savannah for staying the course.

    No candidate outside a 120 mile radius of Atlanta is gonna play that well in here. You will never be in the race. That’s just a fact. You would need to leave the town where you learned values, honesty and honor in a school system that once taught Georgia history and join the Fulton County Commission first.

    Atlanta is the new New York City. No one makes a better pizza, no one makes a better sub sandwich, you just cant get a good haircut like you can in Atlanta……yeah team. :)

    Enjoy the ride.. Detroit’s around the corner.

    We have all the water down here .

      And, just who was the last governor from Atlanta?

      Oh, yeah, Lester Maddox…..and before him, good luck.

        I think there may be a chance you may be reading impaired. I said “play well in here.”.. duh.

    Yes, we are sweating about the 82nd Airborne Florist and the 101’st Hair Stylist from Buckhead

    rats, I was hoping he was opening a new architecture office.

    Johnson is pandering wind-bag who is about as inspiring as John Oxendine and Nathan Deal. This is the guy who chaired the ethics panel in 2007 that dismissed the complaint against Glenn Richardson that charged that he had an “improper relationship” with an AGL lobbyist.

    He’s also the same politician who has built his political foundation on the school voucher idea — one of the worst, most regressive and obviously flawed concepts for public school reform ever imagined by either party.

    Johnson is also a transplant and he lives in Savannah. He’s a bad candidate. We have to get someone other than Johnson, Deal and the Ox in the runoff. Scott is the best case scenario, but he isn’t raising any money (because unlike Johnson, he didn’t resign from the G.A. and he doesn’t take contributions from lobbyists) and he can’t get enough attention. Handel has a better chance.
