The Peach Pundit Tip Line received word this morning that former Alaska Governor and erstwhile VP Nominee Sarah Palin has endorsed both Bob Johnson in CD1 and Barry Loudermilk in CD11.
From Johnson’s press release:
“Dr. Bob Johnson is one doctor we need in the House! Americans are tired of career politicians who make empty promises during campaigns, only to get to Washington to advance their own careers. Dr. Bob is in this campaign with a servant’s heart. As a 26-year Army veteran, a Christian medical missionary, and a surgeon, his life’s work has centered on serving country and neighbors. We need more like him in office. Dr. Bob is a conservative who will work to repeal Obamacare and balance the budget, and he has signed the pledge to self-limit the time he’ll spend in Washington. His campaign is propelled by the good Georgia grassroots. Let’s send Dr. Bob to the House on July 22nd!”
From Loudermilk’s press release:
“Barry Loudermilk has a proven record of conservatism in the Georgia General Assembly, one that I hope he can bring to the weak-kneed in the halls of Congress. Barry is an Air Force veteran, small business owner, father, grandfather, and husband who met his beautiful wife in the great state of Alaska many summers ago,” said Governor Palin. “Barry will take his strong work ethic, life experiences, and conservative principles to Washington where he will join the fight to restore our great nation and use the Constitution as his guide. Please join me in supporting Barry Loudermilk for U.S. Congress on July 22nd.”
Not everyone was excited about the news of these Palin endorsements. Loudermilk’s competitor Bob Barr took to Twitter to make sure people knew that Karen Handel has not won every race in which she’s competed. Of course neither has President, err, Congressman, no wait, just two time loser Bob Barr.
