Senate candidate Jack Kingston received the endorsement of a second member of the Georgia congressional delegation today. Congressman Tom Price, M.D., who represents the 6th District, including east Cobb, north Fulton and north DeKalb counties, made this announcement:

Jack Kingston has always been a steadfast leader in the fight for conservative principles. On a broad range of issues, he’s built a proven record of cutting wasteful spending and holding Washington accountable. He doesn’t shy away from making the tough but important decisions.

He’s tested, proven and won’t wilt in the face of pressure. The folks of Atlanta will be able to count on Jack Kingston when it comes to the issues we care the most about – expanding economic growth, reining in the power and reach of government, and replacing ObamaCare with patient-centered solutions. Simply put, he’ll be there for us. Jack’s a trusted ally and friend, and has a quality of character that will make him a strong voice in the U.S. Senate on behalf of Georgia families.

Kingston thanked Price for his support:

Tom Price helped lead the Republican takeover of the General Assembly and has risen to become a thought leader in the national conservative movement. We have fought side by side to cut the size and scope of government, empower America’s job creators, and strengthen our national defense. I am honored to have his support in this effort to take our fight for conservative principle to the U.S. Senate.

Congressman Lynn Westmoreland endorsed Kingston last week.

Interesting to see where that (Price endorsement) leads, as in the runoff, Kingston has to get more in metro Atlanta—he won’t have the benefit of having the area split 7 ways as it was on May 20. Perdue beat him by about 9,000 votes in the 6th CD in the primary, getting 31% in the district to 14% for Kingston (not surprisingly. Handel won the district, her home base—though with a lower than expected 39%). Perdue’s respectable showing in the district perhaps not totally unexpected—the 6th backed a person of similar pedigree, Mitt Romney, in the 2012 Republican presidential primary.

Birds of a feather …
