Senate candidate Jack Kingston held a ribbon cutting on Sunday to celebrate the opening of his campaign headquarters on Satellite Boulevard in Duluth, near Gwinnett Place Mall. Over 150 people ranging from college students to elected officials were in attendance.

After a brief outdoor ceremony, Kingston went inside to talk to those in attendance, thanking them and urging their support in the upcoming primary.
Kingston’s decision to locate his headquarters in Gwinnett County rather than in his hometown of Savannah reflects his desire to become better known in metro Atlanta, where the bulk of Primary voters reside. With Karen Handel previously having held office in Fulton County, and Phil Gingrey having been elected by many of the Cobb County residents he hopes will vote for him, the choice of Duluth as a headquarters location shows Kingston’s desire to tap into the state’s second-largest Republican primary voter base.
