GA State Senator, (R) Josh McKoon, has announced he will be running for Secretary of State in the upcoming election. In his interview this morning McKoon states that one of his primary focuses will be to safeguard the state’s future elections. He believes that because the voting machines are due to be replaced soon that if up to him he would consider going back to the optical scan type of voting machines rather than the electronic ones used now. This would lessen the chances of malfunctions, data issues and hacking abilities. Senator McKoon, if elected would like to work more with small business owners and individuals with aspirations of starting their own company. Lastly McKoon states if elected, he would like to implement an open online database where the tax payers can go to this site and see exactly how their tax money is being spent.
Constitutional conservative GA Senator and Candidate for GA Governor Hunter Hill came on the show this morning to discuss why he is running for Governor. Hill has been a member of the GA Senate since 2012 after returning home from his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. During this interview Hunter Hill talks about the importance of the core competencies that he would focus on in the state if elected as Governor. These being public safety, education, and transportation. Hill made the statement that the current restrictions on the education system is “stifling leadership” not just within the classroom but even into the administration within the schools. Hear all these details and more in this interview.
Former GA Senator Saxby Chambliss has endorsed Karen Handel in the 6th District Congressional race. Chambliss chose to retire from US Senate in 2014. Many feel this was due to moderate votes and willingness to work with Democrats made him too vulnerable for re-election in 2014.
Senator David Perdue, who won Chambliss’ seat in 2014, has endorsed Dan Mooney for the 6th District Congressional race. During Perdue’s campaign he referred to himself as the true outsider in the race. Perdue early on supported Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
Handel was one of Perdue’s opponents in the Senate race which Perdue ultimately went on to win. So, if Perdue is a conservative and Saxby was a moderate at best; you pick which candidate will go to D.C. and most emulate the Senator who endorsed them.
