Rep. Williams added: “I believe he has the character we need from every member of the House of Representatives in Washington today. I am proud to pass the conservative mantle to Cory Ruth, and ask every Republican to help support him.”
Ruth, who is one of 32 African-Americans running for Congress as Republicans this year, said he was humbled by Williams’ support.
“Betty Jo Williams stands for everything I want to be as a member of Congress,” said Ruth. “I’m honored and humbled by her endorsement and hope that I can help grow the ranks of Republicans and bring responsible, conservative leadership to the 4th District.”
Ruth, who manages information security standards for a Fortune 500 banking services company, decided to run because of the current economic crisis in our nation and its effects on the people of Georgia’s 4th district.
