Rep. Drew Ferguson makes an early endorsement in Lt. Gov race
We're still a long way out from the 2018 elections, but at least one Georgia Congressman already knows who he's supporting for the state's #2 spot.
On Thursday, U.S. Rep. Drew Ferguson endorsed State Senator Rick Jeffares' bid for Lt. Governor. The endorsement came with a financial contribution of $5,000.
“Rick is by far the best choice to be Georgia’s Lt. Governor,” Ferguson said. “He’s smart, works hard and has a vision for making government smaller and more relevant to our communities. He’s as frustrated with state government as I am with Washington and he has great ideas for making it better.”
Ferguson serves Georgia’s 3rd Congressional district, which includes much of Jeffares’ State Senate district.
“Drew was a great Mayor of West Point and is fighting hard for all of us in Washington,” Rick said. “He gets how oppressive government has become to our citizens and small businesses, how it has grown into a monster bureaucracy stifling American freedoms and entrepreneurialism. I am proud to have him in my corner.”
Others in the race for Lt. Governor include Senate President Pro Tem David Shafer and State Rep. Geoff Duncan.
