Graves Statement on Congressman Deal’s Resignation

State Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ranger), the leading Republican candidate for Congress in Georgia’s 9th District, released the following statement after today’s announcement that Congressman Deal would resign his seat March 8th:

“As I announced ten months ago, my intentions have been to be North Georgia’s conservative voice in Congress. Nothing has changed. If anything, we are only more resolved to send a proven conservative to fill the large voids left in Washington.

“There are still many important issues facing our country. We need patient-centered, patient-driven health care reforms, not ObamaCare. We need a real JOBS Bill, not another government-funded stimulus bill. North Georgia’s conservative voice deserves to be heard.

“My campaign has been working hard for the last ten months. We’ve raised the most money. We are the only campaign that has a grassroots organization in all 15 counties of the district. It is exciting to see the momentum and energy that this campaign generates daily.

“Obviously, we don’t know the date of the special election yet, and we await the Governor’s decision. Regardless, the Graves campaign and the GA-9 Freedom Fighters are ready, whether we have an election soon rather than later.

“All of North Georgia should join Julie and me in thanking Nathan and Sandra for their many years of service in Washington on behalf of North Georgia.”
