Senator Seth Harp (R-Midland) released a statement in response to Commissioner John Oxendine's comments regarding Seth Harp during last night's Atlanta Press Club Republican Gubernatorial Debate.
"Our campaign's previous statements about the rampant ethical issues of the current Insurance Commissioner's Office were not about John Oxendine, as candidate for Governor, but about cleaning up the Insurance Commissioner's Office," said Harp. "I'd like to assure the people of Georgia that the Harp administration will be a vast departure from the current leadership and that there will be a fair playing field for all involved. I will run the Office of Insurance Commissioner with integrity, honor and accountability."
A lifelong Republican, Seth Harp is a former Marine, having volunteered to serve in combat in Vietnam, and also a former J.A.G. prosecutor. Harp's parents instilled in him a commitment to serve others and, regardless of whether you've been told to, to always "do the right thing."
A resident of Muscogee County, Seth is married to Linda Collins Harp of Camilla, Georgia and they have two married daughters, Mary Rebecca Dick and Leslee Shannon (and three grandchildren). The Harps are members of Wynnton United Methodist Church in Columbus where they have taught Sunday school.
