I know we’re past the election, but I believe this should be highlighted. Here’s a shout out to all of the TARs, CRs, and YRs who volunteer their time, energy, and talent to supporting the cause.
Representative John Barrow won re-election in November in a district that was drawn to be more likely be won by a Republican candidate. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen, but the NRCC still has him in their sights. Apparently the Congressman has taken notice from this tweet:
Because, you know, Democrats would never follow and record Republican elected officials.
Anyway, the young man in the picture of Congressman Barrow’s tweet is Ben Stout. Ben is 18 years old, but has been involved in Republican politics since he was 11 by knocking on doors and putting up yard signs to re-elect the late Representative Bobby Franklin. He’s spend numerous man-hours volunteering for Representatives Paul Broun and Tom Graves, 9th Congressional Republican candidate Martha Zoller, and helped pull an upset win for 12th Congressional Republican candidate Lee Anderson.
I first met Ben a few years ago when he was helping State Senator Jeff Mullis and former Representative Martin Scott win re-election by going door-to-door and putting up yard signs for both candidates in Walker, Dade, Catoosa, and Chattooga Counties. He’s been all over the state helping candidates for years, and now he’s answered the call of the National Republican Congressional Committee by tagging along with Congressman John Barrow as a video recorder at his various events…while also entering college as a freshman at Toccoa Falls.
Ben is like one of thousands of young patriots who have chosen to use their free time to volunteer for candidates they believe in. Keep fighting the good fight.
