Huckabee announces Georgia leadership team
Huckabee: "Georgia is a key plank to our campaign strategy, and I'm energized by the groundswell of conservative support we have across the Peach State."
LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- Former Arkansas Governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee announced his Georgia leadership team today, which includes Gov. Sonny Perdue and former Congressman John Linder.
"Gov. Mike Huckabee is a strong conservative with the backbone, integrity and leadership America needs to break through Washington's dysfunction and restore our greatness," said Governor Perdue, Huckabee for President Georgia State Chair. "I'm proud to have known Mike and his wife Janet for years. I strongly support his campaign for President and I encourage everyone across Georgia to get involved and do the same."
"Our 75,000 page tax code is a complete disaster and one of the many reasons I support Mike Huckabee's campaign for president is because of his unwavering support for the FairTax, which will permanently abolish the IRS," said former Congressman John Linder. "Gov. Huckabee is a conservative outsider, and as President, he has the leadership experience to move us beyond President Obama's mess and get America back on track."
Gov. Huckabee also released the following statement:
"Georgia is a key plank to our campaign strategy, and I'm energized by the groundswell of conservative support we have across the Peach State. Brick by brick, we have a strong grassroots team that is swelling across the country that will power us through the Republican primary."
