Former Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party Sue Everhart has made a stance in the Republican primary race for Georgia’s next US Senator. From Karen’s campaign:
Former Georgia GOP Chair Sue Everhart endorsed Karen Handel’s campaign for the U.S. Senate today. Everhart, the popular three-term state party chair (the only person to have been elected to three terms for the post) called Handel “the conservative fighter we need so desperately in Washington.”
“I am proud to have Sue Everhart’s support,” Keren said. “She has been the leading voice for the Georgia Republican Party grassroots and will be a tremendous asset to our campaign.”
In a letter sent to Georgia Republicans today, Sue wrote:For the past 6 years, it was my honor to serve you as Chairman of the Georgia Republican Party. Today, it is my honor to enthusiastically put my full support behind Karen Handel for United States Senate.Having known Karen and Steve for many years, I have every confidence in her. Karen Handel will be the conservative fighter we need so desperately in Washington. I know that Karen will continue to hold our Party’s principles dear to her heart. And unlike a lot of folks in Washington, Karen has a record of standing by those principles in good times and bad.Karen comes from the grassroots. She’s one of us — and she won’t forget it. We have the opportunity to elect a conservative woman that will be accountable to us and not the broken system in Washington. What’s wrong in Washington will not be solved by Congressmen that have spent over 40 years in Congress.
