Johnson Makes Statewide Push Before Primary

Surging campaign stays focused on jobs and the economy

Senator Eric Johnson, Republican candidate for Governor, today made his final statewide push before the Tuesday, July 20th primary election with stops in Atlanta, Dalton, Columbus, Macon, Augusta, Albany, and Savannah. Recent polls have shown the Johnson campaign surging towards a spot in the runoff.

“I can feel momentum building in our campaign as more and more voters sort through all the silliness and clutter to find the proven conservative in this race,” said Johnson. “We have always said that we are going to peak on Election Day and that is exactly what we are doing.”

Johnson has laid out a detailed plan to put Georgia back to work, a comprehensive plan to crack down on illegal immigration, and a bold plan to personalize education. The campaign has not done or released a single negative ad, mail piece, or automated call.

“Attacks on our fellow Republicans aren’t going to create one job, they aren’t going to stop one teacher furlough day, they’re not going to lower taxes for one Georgia family,” said Johnson. “I am staying focused on the issues that matter and the voters are taking notice.”

Johnson has been endorsed by newspapers from across the state, including The Albany Herald, The Blackshear Times, Marietta Daily Journal, The Cherokee Tribune, The Alma Times, The Charlton County Herald and Savannah Morning News. His campaign has also been endorsed by former U.S. Senator Mack Mattingly, Congressman Jack Kingston, and 51 current members of the Georgia General Assembly, the most of any candidate.

An architect and a respected conservative leader, Eric Johnson served as President Pro Tempore of the Georgia State Senate. In that role, he passed legislation that cut over $2 billion in taxes, reduced wasteful spending, empowered small businesses, and protected doctors and businesses from frivolous lawsuits. He and his wife Kathryn have two grown children and live in Savannah.
