Last Tuesday in the Republican primary for Insurance Commissioner, I was honored to receive the votes of almost ninety-two thousand of my fellow Georgians. I am proud of the campaign we ran. We stayed positive throughout and advanced the conservative cause, which I have fought for throughout my entire career.
While I am disappointed that our campaign was not victorious, I am still optimistic about the future of our state and the prospects of the Republican Party to retain this important constitutional office for another four years. The choice for Insurance Commissioner is now down to two. I can personally attest to the credentials of one of those candidates without hesitation. Ralph Hudgens is a man of faith and character. I worked closely with Ralph as we chaired the respective Insurance Committees in the Georgia House and Senate. He shares with me the belief in a strong conservative approach to government and support for the free-market.
Michelle and I consider Ralph and Suzanne to be our personal friends. Ralph and I were also members of the same men’s Bible study at the capitol. He is an honest, ethical straight-shooter who will make a great Insurance Commissioner. I hope you will join with me in casting your ballot for Ralph Hudgens for Insurance Commissioner on Tuesday August 10th.
