Senator Jeff Chapman, Republican candidate for Governor, today announced that he had received the support of GA Independent Voters as well as the endorsement of gubernatorial candidate Ray Boyd.
“I’ve never been one to seek endorsements, but I’m pleased to receive the support of Mr. Boyd and the Georgia Independent Voters.” Jeff stated. “Both expressed to me that they believe that, more than anything, we need a return to solid ethics and principles to rise above our economic crisis. I am honored that they consider me the candidate to lead that charge.”
In a letter to his supporters, Ray Boyd explained, “Without any reservation I give my full endorsement to Senator Jeff Chapman. From his record as an elected official and what I see in his character, I know that he will put We the People first. As Governor, he will take a strong stand in seeking to remove ethically challenged office holders and bureaucrats at every level in our state.”
Mr. Boyd continued, “Jeff Chapman recognizes the folly of Governors not asserting state’s rights in the face of the ridiculous policies of the Obama administration, and ANY federal body that oversteps its bounds whether controlled by Democrats or Republicans.”
Georgia Independent Voters issued a statement declaring, “A key impression we had, based on [Jeff’s] history and our conversation, was his willingness to stand for issues of principle while in elected office. In our experience, it is one thing to have principles, and another thing to fight for them when going against the grain. Senator Chapman’s history indicates that he has stood up for honesty and openness and has worked in a bipartisan and non-partisan manner, even when his actions (and sometimes his candidacy) were met with disfavor by the Republican Party establishment.”
