Senator Seth Harp (R-Midland) officially qualified to run in the Republican Primary for Georgia's Insurance Commissioner and announced a broad-based Statewide Steering Committee composed of community, industry and political leaders from throughout Georgia.
"I am very thrilled and privileged to have so many great people throughout Georgia endorse my candidacy and support my campaign," Sen.Harp stated. "Over the next few months we will continue to aggressively campaign throughout this state and deliver a message of an Insurance Commissioner who promises to put the taxpayers of Georgia first and give you what you deserve: an Insurance Commissioner you can depend on."
Seth pledges to apply the same conservative values he used in the State Senate in order to crack down on fraud and ensure that Georgians' rights are protected. Seth vows to fight to keep rates low, investigate fraud and bring integrity, honor and accountability to the Department of Insurance.

The steering committee consists of many current and former elected officials, Republican leaders, and industry leaders.
