This isn’t about Ketchup and Chapstich. We are getting word that former State School Superintendent Candidate Roger Hines has endorsed Senator Jeff Chapman for Governor. Normally I refrain from posting items from the tipline that I can not personally substantiate, but a press release sent via email is more substantive than a one sentence tip.
The email in question can be found below the fold. Hines dropped out of the Superintendent race prior to Kathy Cox stepping down, and was the choice of many who were fed up with Cox. This endorsement can only help Jeff Chapman’s campaign by exposing him to more potential voters.
Here’s the press release-esque email:
This is a very important time for Georgia and the Republican Party as we select
our candidate for governor. After thoroughly investigating all of the
candidates, I have decided that I’m voting for Jeff Chapman mainly because I
want a candidate who has unquestionable character and who takes a practical
approach to solving our state’s problems. Jeff has practical business
experience. From serving in the state Senate, he understands the legislative
What I like most about him, though, is that there is no taint or question mark
on this man’s character. He is an absolutely refreshing candidate. I respect
Jeff mightily, I like his ideas, and I am very excited about having him as our
I ask you to go to his web site at www.JeffChapmanForGovernor.com and read his
bio and his stand on the important issues of today. After doing this, I think
you will agree with me that this is definitely the person we need to get behind
and support for governor. I encourage you to forward this to your friends and
associates and encourage them to support Jeff.
I also encourage you to make a donation of $10 or $20 to his campaign to help
purchase the needed campaign materials and TV time to reach a broad audience.
Of course, if you can give more, that too would be greatly appreciated. I have
set up a link to his donation page to make it easy for you, so all you have to
do to donate on Jeff’s secure web site is click here …DONATE. Or if you want
to mail a check, make it payable to “Jeff Chapman for Governor” and send it to
P.O. Box 1436, Brunswick, GA 31521.
Remember, with close to 40% of the likely primary voters saying they are still
undecided, Jeff Chapman has as good of a chance of winning this race as any of
the so-called “front runners”. We just all need to get behind him and support
him in every way we can.
I thank you for supporting me in my endeavors, and now I ask you to help me
elect for our next governor a man who believes the same way as I do on all the
issues, especially education.
