Did you know that there is an estimated 2 trillion dollars that could be invested back in the US economy and it would not cost taxpayers a dime? Ted Cruz and Donald Trump have both talked about it on the campaign trail. I first heard it mentioned by David Perdue before he formally announced that he was running for US Senate. Continue reading
Across Georgia last Saturday the Republican party held District Conventions. Our District Chairman, Joseph Brannan set the tone for the meeting by stating that his desire was to see a slate of delegates for the Republican National Convention who would represent the results of the primary.
Chairman Brannan appointed Gerald Smith of Sumter County as the chairman of the committee. He also appointed Seth Harpe – former State Senator from Muscogee County, Richard Wallace from Bibb County, Ritch McCutchen – 2nd District Chair of the Trump Campaign from Crisp County, and Don Cole – former 2nd District GOP Chair from Crisp County.

I received news yesterday that Bobby Scott, Republican candidate for Congress, died unexepectedly Saturday afternoon. Muscogee County Coroner, Buddy Bryan said that Scott died in his sleep. Scott suffered with diabetic ketoacidosis. He also had high blood sugar and high blood pressure. Scott was 40-years-old.
I met Bobby in person for the first time last Tuesday at the Southwest Georgia Republican Party Headquarters grand opening. After the event, we were talking about the campaign when he looked at his watch and said that he had to leave to get his son.
We never expect this kind of news. According to the news reports, he was found by his son who could not wake him on Saturday afternoon. Our prayers are with Bobby’s family, loved ones, friends, and his campaign team.by

There were no exciting choreographed, complicated, plays. Just three yards and a cloud of dust.
The Ted Cruz campaign could also be characterized as three yards and a cloud of dust. Cruz is a master political strategist. He knows what it takes to win and he has built a campaign organization that focuses on the fundamentals. Last August, Ted Cruz launched a bus tour of states across the South. It was months before the primaries in these states. Continue readingby
