The former campaign manager for , the North Fulton Republican who on Thursday announced plans to run for the District 21 state senate seat currently held by Georgia Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers (R-Woodstock), is endorsing Rogers.
Hours after Beach kicked off his campaign for the Republican nomination, Rogers alerted local media of the endorsement via email.
Here's the text of his release:
Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers announced the support of former State Senator and State Republican Party Chairman Rusty Paul. Paul also served previously as the campaign manager for Brandon Beach a rumored but yet announced or filed candidate for the 21st Senate District.
“I’ve worked with Sen. Rogers for over a decade. While some people claim to be conservative, he’s the walking, talking, living, breathing real thing. Plus, he’s a committed problem solver who is unbelievably adept at developing workable solutions that get the job done without chewing up taxpayer dollars in the process” Said former State Senator and Republican Party Chairman Rusty Paul, Beach’s former campaign manager.
Previously the campaign released unanimous support of the Republican members of the Fulton County delegation. The 21st Senate district is now comprised of parts of Cherokee County and the cities of Milton and Alpharetta in North Fulton County.
“I am blessed to have the support of numerous conservative leaders around my district and our state. Rusty Paul is one of those leaders and I am proud to have his endorsement. Rusty, and conservatives across District 21, have rallied to my steadfast leadership in support of smaller government, lower taxes and educational freedom and choice. People are fed up with perennial candidates desperately seeking titles. Like Rusty, the people of Cherokee and Fulton have enthusiastically embraced my consistent and bold leadership for our conservative values. I will continue to stand strong for them and our shared conservative values,” said Senator Rogers.
Senator Rogers has earned a reputation for being one of Georgia’s strongest advocates on behalf of taxpayers. Rogers has also become a national leader for the pursuit of educational freedom, giving students and parents more opportunity and choice.
Senator Rogers serves as Georgia’s Majority Leader in the State Senate being elected by his peers unanimously. Over the coming weeks Senator Rogers’ campaign will continue to release lists of business, political, and local leaders joining his “Campaign for a Better Georgia”.
